This is the moment three young boys bravely confront a huge snake that has wrapped itself around their pet dog's lower body and hind legs.
A video shows the older boy attempting to pin the snake's head to the grass with what appears to be a metal table leg, while the two younger boys attempt to force the snake to release their dog by hurling large leaves at it.
The dog appears more dazed than distressed while its human companions do battle with the reptile.
The older boy uses the pole to force the snake's head to the ground, while his two companions attempt to unravel the serpent, which appears to be a difficult task at first.
They then grab the snake by both ends and pull in opposite directions, eventually weakening its grip long enough for the dog to escape.
The dog appeared unharmed by the attack.
The older boy then silently triumphantly holds the writhing snake up by its head, its length exceeding his height.
The fate of the serpent is unknown.
It is not clear where the video was filmed.
