The ultimate love for one’s family. 

A Doberman fought to the death as he stood his ground against 4 cobras who were about to attack his owner.

The Dibakar Raita’s family from Sebekapur, a village in the Gajapati district, 400 kms from Bhubaneswar in India, is still reeling from the shock of the event.

“I’m shocked. He has made the supreme sacrifice for me and my family. I will remember him till our death. I pray God – May his soul rest in peace,” said an emotionally overpowered Dibakar to newspersons.


These were mountain cobras, many of which are seen mainly during the monsoon, when rain fills their nests with water.

On Monday evening, 4 snakes tried to enter the family’s house in an effort to get to drier ground. They were challenged by the Doberman who was guarding the entrance gate. The dog fought the snakes and onlookers say that the fight continued for a considerable time. A lot of blood was shed.


The dog fought valiantly until it had killed all four snakes, thus stopping them from harming the family. Then, several minutes after the fight, the dog collapsed from the poison in its bloodstream.

The villagers laid floral wreaths on the body of the slain dog and held a funeral procession before burial. – India Times

Snakes are often found in the most unlikely places including in residential areas. That’s when dogs find themselves protecting humans.


Watch how dogs fight snakes. It helps understand why they can get hurt.
