Watch Video: Twitterati isn't happy after men save dog from clutches of python, know why
Three men saved a dog from the clutches of a huge snake that coiled around the pooch and tried to crush it to death. The act was filmed on camera and shared on Twitter on Sunday by Ken Rutkowski. Although the dog was saved, the video has people on the micro-blogging site miffed.
The footage showed a man pulling out the coiled reptile from the waters in a bid to save the dog. Two others joined in and as they manage to bring the snake back on the land, he tried to loosen the grip on the dog’s neck, with his bare hands. When he failed to do it with his hands, he got a big rod to attack the serpent to relieve the dog from its clutches. The dog escapes as the python was hit repeatedly.

People on social media are happy as the dog survived and praised the men for their heroic act but not everyone was happy with the rescue operation. The footage showed the man kept on hitting the serpent even after the dog was left alone. Many asked was it justified to kill one animal to save another?

We'll done but why hit the snake after the dog was released? It's what snakes do.....especially pythons... https://t.co/QYzrKNDMk7— Powdercoating-shropshire (@h2oblast) July 29, 2018
This is amazing but do we choose a dog over a python? https://t.co/yj8jg22FAH— El doctor🌀 (@mijasta_triste) July 29, 2018

Why are they in the snakes habitat? They should know to stay away from the snake.. and if they could drag the snake out the water they could have relocated it or called the proper authorities.— Kaloni Sharee (@lonibear_xoxo) July 29, 2018
It’s not sure if the snake died but it was certainly hurt badly was seen motionless as the footage ended.
