A family from Kuching Malaysia has recently been able to verify this with their own experience. A [ᴘᴏɪsᴏɴᴏᴜs] snake crawled into their dining room.
On 16th May, in the city of Kuching, located in the Malaysian state of Sarawak on the island of Kalimantan, a dog named Chico proved his valor after finding a [ᴅᴇᴀᴅly] and [ᴘᴏɪsᴏɴᴏᴜs] snake in their dining room. Instead of barking at it as most dogs would, he heroically fought the snake to keep the family safe.
Alice said that while they tried their best to pull him away from the snake, he was determined and wouldn’t budge from his ᴀᴛ.ᴛᴀᴄᴋs. This saw him succumbing to the snake’s venom on their car porch after presumably [ᴋ.ɪʟʟɪɴɢ] it took an [ʙɪᴛᴇ] out of the snake.
The animal noticed an uninvited guest in the house where the family lived. Chico bravely ᴀᴛ.ᴛᴀᴄᴋs the [ᴅᴇᴀᴅly] reptile. He fought it until he [ᴋ.ɪʟʟɪed] it. Unfortunately, the snake managed to [ʙɪᴛᴇ] Chico. He went out on the porch, lay down, and can’t pass.
The family took the dog to the vet shortly after, but he did not survive. He sacrificed his life to save his family.
“Unfortunately, we couldn’t save him after he found a [ᴅᴇᴀᴅly ᴘᴏɪ.sᴏɴᴏᴜs] snake in our dining room,” Chico’s owner said.
“You will always remain in our hearts, Chico. We’ll meet again in a better place. Goodbye and rest in peace” wrote his owner Alice Minggu.
Chico was a full member of the family—and proved it with his act.
