In what recently went viral on social networking sites, is a story of a pet dog fighting with a cobra, to protect his ‘family of humans’, even till he sacrificed his life. In a heartwarming display of love and affection towards his human friends, Mouli, a dachshund from the Ernakulam district of Kerala, vigorously stopped a cobra from harming his ‘masters’.
After spotting the five-foot long reptile crawling inside the house, three-year old Mouli started barking unusually till he alerted his human parents. Retired government employee, Nangelil Gangadhar and his wife adopted the dog three years ago when he was just a month old. However, according to a report by the Manorama News, even as the couple stepped out of their room after hearing Mouli bark repeatedly, the Dachshund stopped them from coming out of the room.
Mouli then continued his intense battle with the serpent and their fight continued for more than 30 minutes. And after tireless and committed effort to stop the cobra Mouli managed to save the old couple by killing the cobra. As reported by Manorama News, although patrolling police reached the house after they heard the chaos, neither the couple or the cops dared to intervene and save Mouli from fighting his last battle.
Minutes after the clash, Mouli breathed his last, possibly been bitten by the poisonous serpent. Gangadharan, who lives in with his wife in their Perambavur resident, said Manorama News that the dog had been protecting them since long.
