This amazing story happened in Punjab, India. Two little puppies fell into the well, which fortunately turned out to be empty.
The mother dog quickly ran to the edge of the well and started barking loudly to attract the attention of the owner. When he came, he saw a King Cobra at the bottom of the well. He was really afraid that the snake could harm the puppies, but she didn’t show any signs of aggression. On the contrary, it appeared that she even looked after the dogs and prevented them from going on to the other side, where they could have drowned if the well was filled with water.
The man could not free the puppies by himself, because the well was really very deep. It took two days for the reinforcements to come. And the cobra was quietly lying near the puppies all this time, until the help came. When Forest protection service had finally arrived, the cobra just crawled to the other side. The puppies were finally set free, the snake had been released into the wild, and the dogs have been successfully returned to their mother.
Even the most dangerous and violent animals know how to coexist and live together peacefully. The mankind is far behind the animals in this respect, and it’s definitely our great and shameful scarcity.
