Dog lovers would do anything to protect their loyal companions, so when one Florida man’s tiny dog came face to face with an eight-foot-long python, he was ready to do anything to keep his best friend from becoming the snake’s snack.
Last week, Joseph Liscinsky opened his garage door after going for his usual morning walk with his beloved dog, Midnight. But unlike every other day, Liscinsky and midnight came face to face with a deadly predator. “I didn’t have a heart attack,” Liscinsky said. “But my adrenaline kicked in and my heart started pounding. I was stunned because I was a foot away from it.”
The 60-year-old immediately grabbed his 14-pound dog and put him inside before turning back and wrestling the snake into a pillow case. “He got my fingers,” said Liscinsky. “As long as he didn’t get my dog. He would have been crushed by that snake. I was lucky I went out with him.”
“My neighbors were shooting video while I was trying to wrestle the snake. They all enjoyed it. My phone wouldn’t stop ringing. They put it on the news.” While everyone was impressed by his bravery, Liscinsky claims he was just doing what he had to do to protect his dog. “That thing would’ve wrapped this dog up, broke its bones and ate him,” he said.
