At 80 years old, she heard her new little dog screaming around 6:30 p.m., so she went outside to see what was going on…

An 80-year-old woman from Lennox Head, Australia, became a hero after saving her puppy from the clutches of a carpet python.

Alerted by her dog’s cries of distress, she rushed to the scene to discover the python wrapped around her pet.

Despite three snake bites during the ordeal, she managed to free her puppy.

The woman’s daughter shared the remarkable story online, calling her mother “amazing.”

A photo was released showing the woman inspecting her bitten arm while holding the snake by its tail.

Australians praised her courage and resilience, affectionately calling her a “legend” and a “fighter”.

Despite well-meaning advice from concerned citizens to seek medical attention for snake bites, the woman, driven by her deep love for her puppy, chose not to go to the hospital.

Although wildlife guidelines advise against interfering with and handling wild snakes without a license, carpet pythons are known for their powerful bites.
