When a vicious python coiled itself around a dog in an attempt to strangle it, a group of villagers came to the dog’s aid. After a bit of an intense struggle, the men eventually made a breakthrough.
A violent encounter between a vicious python and a small dog was caught on camera recently when a group of villagers came across the distressing attack in progress. The dog had supposedly gone missing from a farm in Brazil and the villager search party had been launched to find it.
Initially, the dog was found in the river wrapped up in the clutches of the anaconda, who had coiled itself around the pup, in an attempt to strangle it. Upon finding it in the water, one villager managed to grab the snake with his bare hands, and pull it out onto the grass verge.
With the snake sprawled out on the grass, still with the dog tied up in its grasp, villagers made an intense effort to try and free the dog from being violently strangled to death. Using both sticks and their bare hands, their efforts to save the animal have been classed as heroic.
