A dog owner saved her puppy with her bare hands after a carpet python attempted to choke the pet to death. The video of the rescue act is now being widely shared on social media.
The video recorded on November 27 shows the snake darting out of a bush before wrapping itself around the nine-week-old puppy named Jasper.
Queensland resident Michelle van Schouwen is seen rushing outside to rescue the dog. She is seen striking the snake with a roll of Christmas paper before using her hands to free the dog.

“It was just panic, so I ran and when I got to the end of the patio I just sort of froze and screamed,” Ms van Schouwen told local news channel Win News.
According to a Daily Mail report, the puppy managed to escape with a bite to its left ear and a bruised lung.
