A case of life and death
In Karnataka region in India, dangerous animals are not uncommon - especially deadly snakes. This dog crossed paths with a python who decided he wanted him for his dinner. The snake had begun to wrap itself around its prey, ready to suffocate and then swallow him. Luckily, the dog's owners arrived in time and were able to bravely beat off the python with a stick. After a few seconds, the cold-blooded creature relinquishes the dog and slithers off to find its lunch elsewhere.
