Cappy killed his first brown snake (about 1m long – an immature snake, no doubt about it) when he was only a few months old. I remember him bailing up a carpet snake under our house a few weeks later in the middle of the summer heat and barking incessantly for hours and hours. It drove us nuts but he was doing what nature told him to do." "Cappy was keeping Ken company when a 1 1/2m brown snake came by. Cappy attacked it – Ken isn’t sure if it was trying to get away or coming closer – but he was sure that Cappy got bitten at least once – maybe more times. He shook the snake and did manage to kill it – perhaps saving Ken from being bitten. Ken says that the dog was dragging his back legs after that and appeared to become paralysed so he picked him up and brought him home." For those that don't realise that Australia is currently undergoing some serious threats from a small percentage of the population who refuse to vaccinate, it appears their ignorance knows no bounds.
