Two fearless Pit bulls are hailed heroes in their community after saving two children from a venomous snake! The snake had been spotted before and the dogs were apparently on the look out!
Pit bulls Paco and Slayer were rushed to the veterinarian after they battled a copperhead snake that was lurking in backyard of their family home. The snake was spotted dangerously close to four-year-old Zayden and one-year-old Mallory.
The two dogs barked and barked until owner Melissa Butt and her daughter Cynthia, who are the children’s mother, noticed the ruckus. Cynthia and husband, Daniel, checked up on the bunch and found the scene of horror.
The couple managed to whisk the children away from harm but the dog were not so lucky. The dogs were hounding the snake to prevent it from getting to the children.
Eventually, the dogs had to engage the freaked out snake. It got Slayer on the snout, and Paco on the elbow. Slayer managed to kill the snake by biting it.
“Slayer grabbed the snake in his mouth and killed it,” Melissa told Today.
