Dog battles poisonous snake

This video does not have sound.

A video posted on social media this week shows a dog in Australia attacking an eastern brown snake, one of the most venomous species in the world.

The home security footage was shared by Teresa Barnden, who lives in the south Australian city of Truro.

In the video, Barnden's 9-year-old Shiba Inu named Chardy can be seen aggressively defending her territory in the front yard of Barnden's home.

Barnden called a local veterinarian after the fight to have Chardy treated with antivenin for possible snake bites.

Barnden said Chardy won the battle and is recovering.
