Hero dog dies protecting baby from cobra

Two dogs sacrificed themselves to stop a deadly cobra from going into a room where a one-year-old slept inside.

The brave pets fought the lethal reptile by baby Skye’s room, outside the family home in Kidapawan City, the Philippines. Incredible CCTV showed Moxie, a two-year-old white dachshund, immediately rushing over and pawing at the snake as it neared the property. The other dog Miley, aged four, then launched into a frenzied defence and picked up the dangerous monacled cobra in her jaws.

Desperate to get away, the cobra made a beeline for the front door but the dogs worked together to move it away from the house.

The one-year-old girl named Skye was sleeping in the house in Kidapawan City, the Philippines, when the deadly reptile entered the front yard last Friday (19/07). CCTV footage shows how the two-year-old white dachshund named Moxie immediately went over to the snake and began pawing at it. But sensing the danger, the more protective older dog, Miley, aged four, launched into a frenzied defence and picked up the monacled cobra in its jaws. The cobra made a beeline for the front door but the pair of dogs worked together - biting its tail and dragging it away from the children's toys, and the room where the girl was sleeping. After a two-minute tussle, the snake stopped moving. But tragically, Miley also died moments later from her injuries after being bitten by the cobra, one of the most venomous in the world. The other dog survived but was left blind after being hit by the snake's sprayed venom.

After a two-minute tussle, the snake stopped moving and died from its injuries.

But sadly moments later, Miley also died from her injuries, having been bitten by the cobra several times.

The snake is one of the most venomous in the world.
