Moana is the savior of my family. “If it weren’t for him, the snake would have climbed up the stairs and into my room,” said Jego Macs.
Dogs are considered the most loyal companions of humans for a reason. This is based on real-life heartwarming stories about the loyalty of these animals to their owners.
Recently, a post about Moana, a dog in the Philippines, who died after fighting a venomous snake to save its owner, went viral on social media, leaving many people impressed.
The incident happened at 1:30 pm on April 15 when a king cobra entered Jego Macs’ house in Tacloban City, Leyte Province, Philippines. This is one of the most poisonous snakes in the world, and if it enters a house, it will undoubtedly pose a danger to human life. Luckily, Moana, the family dog, discovered it early and blocked it from the bottom of the stairs.
“When I was watching TV in the house, I heard Moana barking loudly outside, thinking that he was just playing as usual. But when I went out, I saw him struggling with a king cobra. I rushed to help Moana beat the snake, but before we could celebrate the victory, he died after a few minutes because of the snake’s venom,” Jego Macs recounted the entire story.
Moved by the brave dog’s courage, Van Nguyen commented, “An eternal smile! You fought and defeated evil bravely. Although short, your smile will shine forever in people’s hearts.”
Sharing with Zing.vn, Jego Macs said that Moana was a Chihuahua mix and was a gift from his uncle in April 2017.
“I am very grateful to Moana for saving my and my family’s lives. But I also feel sad and regretful about the dog’s passing. If I had run out immediately when I heard him barking at first, he would certainly have been rescued.
My whole family was shocked by Moana’s passing, and his birthday was only 17 days away. We will remember him for the rest of our lives,” Jego Macs said.
Moana, when he was alive, always played happily with his owner (left photo). Moved by the dog’s bravery and devotion, Jego Macs’ family held a small funeral to express their gratitude towards their savior before burying him.
Jego Macs confided that since living with his family, Moana had become his close friend, a “medicine” that helped him reduce stress at work, and they played and joked together every day.
