Tacloban dog dies after saving family from a cobra

A pet dog in Tacloban City was killed after it saved its owners from a cobra that managed to sneak into the house.

According to a Sunday report on GMA 7 news program "24 Oras Weekend",  Jericho Bernarte Macua's dog named Moana started to bark and was agitated by something under the stairs of the house.

It turned out that there was a venomous snake hiding under the steps, and the family dog bit at it. Macua later on finished-off the injured snake.

Unfortunately, the snake was also able to bite the dog and Moana expired.

While the Macua family grieved the loss of Moana, they were also grateful to their faithful pet. — Jon Viktor Cabuenas/DVM, GMA News
