Four cats jumped on a killer cobra snake and saved the life of a two-year-old Saudi girl at her house in the Gulf Kingdom before the reptile was killed by the child’s mother, a newspaper reported on Saturday.
The poisonous cobra sneaked into the house in a rugged village in the southern province of Aseer and crawled towards the girl who was playing outside her room, Okaz Arabic language daily said.
“Four cats at the house jumped at the snake and a pitched battle erupted. The frightened girl then started to scream, causing her mother to rush out,” it said.
“The mother then hurried to the kitchen, got a big knife and brought it down on the snake’s head…after a battle of few minutes, the cobra was killed.”
