Dog vs Snake
As a dog owner, it’s always interesting to see how our furry friends react to different animals. Recently, my English bulldogs had a run-in with a non-venomous black snake on our property.
It all started when the snake attempted to eat one of our baby chickens and ultimately killed it. I decided to take the six-foot-long snake to another part of the property to release it, and my curious bulldogs followed along.
The female bulldog couldn’t resist her sniffing instinct and got right up in the snake’s face. The snake took a few strikes to warn her, but she kept coming. Then the bigger male bulldog wanted to get involved and, while I was filming closer, the snake struck at him. I could hear the yelp of the bulldog as the snake bit him in the nose.
The female bulldog came over to see what the commotion was and potentially come to the other dog’s rescue. However, the non-venomous black snake took a good hold of her nose for a split second. It seemed like both dogs were unsure of how to handle this situation since they couldn’t figure out a winning fight strategy.
Luckily, no dogs or snakes were injured, but it was unfortunate that a chicken was killed by the snake moments earlier. It’s always important to keep an eye on our dogs and their interactions with other animals, especially those that could be potentially harmful.
In the end, our bulldogs learned to respect the boundaries of the snake and let it go on its way. It was fascinating to see their instincts kick in and how they reacted to the snake. As a pet owner, it’s always a learning experience and adventure to see how our pets interact with the world around them.
