NEW YORK POST:
This Florida “tail” had all the elements of a Greek tragedy — including a hero named Zeus.
A Florida family is mourning the death of their brave pit bull, Zeus — who died this week defending two kids from a venomous snake.
The Richardson brothers, Oriley and Orion, were refilling Zeus’ water bowl on Monday outside the family’s Sumter County home when the 8-month-old pooch spotted the deadly coral snake and sprung into action, according to a report.
“All of a sudden, he started attacking the snake, which was close to my son, and he was bit four times,” dad Gary Richardson told Fox 35 in Orlando.
