Loyal dog dies protecting its owner in M'sia

A dog in Selangor sacrificed its life to protect its owner, reported Sin Chew Daily.

The canine, named Xiao Hei, tried to fight off a poisonous snake which had entered the owner's home.

During the scuffle, the dog was bitten by the snake and died from the poison. 

The dog owner said this is the third time in five years that a snake has entered his home.

The man believes snakes have been attracted to the area because of the long grass near the house.

He told the paper he hopes that the authorities will clean up the area as a safety measure.
