Panda had actually been targeted by a python before being rescued by this man.
Without the heroic intervention of a neighbor, a puppy attacked by a snake would probably not have survived.
Sarah Douglas will never be able to thank Stuart Brazer enough, the neighbor she still didn’t know who helped her young dog barely survive.
A panda, a 4-month-old female Staffordshire Bull Terrier, was actually targeted by a python before being rescued by the man, Australia’s ABC News reported this Thursday, Jan. 27.
The incident took place at the home of Sarah Douglas in Sunshine Beach, Queensland, on the east coast of Australia. This mother was about to leave when she heard a noise from the back garden.
On the way there, he encountered a real vision of horror. A 2.5-meter python bit a small dog on the head, hugging his body. His embrace was getting tighter and tighter and he needed to act as quickly as possible.
Sarah Douglas began to call for help in a panic. Here the man jumped over the fence and caught the snake’s head with one hand.
The owner of the panda thought he was losing himself. He called Stuart McKenzie, a professional snake catcher, and tried to open the python’s body by grabbing it by the tail. He succeeded with great effort, but the fangs of the reptile still sank into the dog’s head. Taking them off was even more difficult.
After freeing the dog, Sarah Douglas and her hero neighbor use a blanket and pillowcase to immobilize the snake until Stuart Mackenzie arrives.
