What’s better than a sunny Sunday afternoon? How about a sunny Sunday afternoon – when your dog saves your life? That’s what happened to an unidentified man on Australia’s Gold Coast. He was kicking back on his patio looking at his smart phone when a deadly eastern brown snake slithered up.
Fortunately for the man (dubbed Drew S on his YouTube page), his dog went after the thing – and alerted his human in the process. “After watching the footage on the security cam it looks like our dog stopped it going inside,” he notes. “If it wasn’t for her I would have probably kept looking at my phone.” Either way, it was a deadly crisis averted.
For those who don’t know, the eastern brown snake is currently the leading cause of snakebite deaths in Australia.
