Plucky terrier takes on black mamba...and wins

by 14/06/2018 03:09:00 0 comments 1 Views

A truculent terrier named Jasper is on the mend after a brush with a black mamba nearly sent him to the big bone yard in the sky.

The fact that the feisty pooch survived the snake bite – which resulted in him being placed on a ventilator for several hours on Tuesday – has been called a miracle by herpetologist and snack catcher Nick Evans.

Evans said he had been phoned by Jasper’s owner‚ Morag Liebenberg‚ who said that the eight-year-old hound had killed a snake at their Dawncliff home.

“She thought the snake was harmless but she sent me a picture just to be sure – and it was a black mamba. It had been ripped to pieces. When I confirmed what the snake was‚ she rushed Jasper to the vet‚” he said.

His condition had deteriorated drastically‚ forcing Evans to rush to a city hospital in search of life-saving anti-venom.
