Dogs Save Grandchildren

When a poisonous snake slithered into a yard where two young children were playing; the family dogs came to the rescue.

But they paid a price.


One of the heroes, a pit bull named "Slayer" really lived up to his name but is now recovering in a veterinary hospital in Hillsborough County, Florida.

"Slayer" and his partner "Paco" killed the snake in the yard where the family's young grandchildren were playing.

But both dogs were rushed to an emergency clinic with severe reactions where it was determined they were bitten by a copperhead, rarely found in Florida.

They were given anti-venom but Slayer was bitten twice in the face and is in a lot of pain.

Elephants Rescue Tourists

The death toll in parts of northern India, southern Nepal and Bangladesh devastated by flooding and landslides over the past few days has risen to 218, while millions of others have been displaced.

In Nepal, elephants were sent by local hotels to rescue stranded tourists in the Chitwan district, which is a popular destination for rhino-watching and elephant rides.

Deadly landslides and flooding are common across south Asia during the summer monsoon season that stretches from June to September.
