Man saves dog from python

It’s lucky that dog was alive!

A dog owner went up against a gigantic python snake in order to save his pet – albeit from a safe distance.

The dog’s great escape was caught on a video which shows the python wrapped tight around the motionless animal.

The owner, standing out of shot, is seen whacking the huge snake with a leafy branch, in the short clip, recorded in Karnataka, India.

As the owner hits lengthy python with the leafy branch, the snake begins to move.

The act works, as the stunned python begins uncoiling, allowing the dog to wriggle free.
