When this poisonous monarch comes out to hunt, the whole forest steers clear.
In Punjab, India, a dog owner noticed that two of his puppies were missing and were nowhere to be found. It was until he saw the pup’s mother barking at a nearby well, that he saw the two pups actually fell into the pit. As if that wasn’t dangerous enough, the owner saw a large king cobra beside them!
To the surprise of the locals, the snake didn’t ‘eat’ the dogs, nor did it try to harm them. If anything, the snake even seemed to protect the pups from the remaining water inside the well.
The puppies and the snake remained in the well for 48 hours. When help arrived from the forest department, the snake moved to the other end of the pool. The puppies are safe and sound at this moment. The snake was later removed from the well and released in the woods.
Even the deadliest and fiercest of animals learned their lessons of co-existence and empathy. We are still lacking behind all of them. It’s actually a shame on our intelligence.
