When a dog saved a family
Dogs for many, are considered as an important family member because of their selfless devotion towards their masters. This story is an example of the same, the dog sacrificed its own life to save eight members of his master’s family.  The dog, a Doberman, fought a furious battle with four mountain cobras for hours and killed all of them. But moments later, he also succumbed to the poisonous snakebites bringing about a tragic end to his life.


How did it unfold?

On Monday night, the snakes tried to stray into the house of Dibakar Raita in Sabekapur village of Gajapati district in Odisha. The dog who was guarding the house tried to resist the snakes and a bloody fight broke out between them. Dibakar and his family are still mourning the death of their beloved dog whom they had brought home just a few months ago.  Hundreds of villagers came and held a funeral of the slain dog and buried him later. The Sebakpur village lying on a foothill region often experiences wild animals straying into the villages and houses of villagers.
