Meet Morocho, the Dogo who defeated a Puma to save two little girls.
A few months ago, ulises (the grandson of the inventor, Dr. Nores Martines) decided to go to La Cocha to do some work. Her goal was to travel and return the same day, so she took her 10-year-old daughter, “Sofa.” The trip went well.
Once at the estancia, Uises started doing some work with Tomás, the foreman. Sofa and Yoli, Tomás’ daughter, asked permission to walk to a huge fig tree located 700 meters from the main house to harvest and eat figs.
Yoli went to the highest branch she could, knowing that the tastiest figs are normally found at the top of the tree. There was just one problem. She wasn’t the only one who had climbed this tree.
Yoli began to hear sounds at the top of the tree, when she was about 2 meters off the ground, like branches twisting and leaves moving.
She had no idea that a cougar, sometimes called a mountain lion, was hiding in the same tree.
She glanced up and saw a large cougar leaping along the upper branches. “The beast pawed at the girl, and Yoli took the whole fall, falling flat on her back from a height of two meters.”
Morocho, one of Ulises’ best dogo, had followed them playfully, wagging his tail, as he almost always does when they walk around the estancia.
When Yoli’s father heard the girls crying, he ran as fast as he could, and when Morocho came face to face with a puma, the Dogo Argentino decided to sacrifice his life to save two little girls.
“I thought it was a snake,” said Tomas Bracamonte. “I came up sprinting. I ran toward them as fast as I could.”
“When he arrived, he discovered Morocho. The dog had been badly injured but was still alive. The Puma ran from us.”
Those two little girls are alive today because of Morocho. Morocho’s courageous effort has surprised millions of people around the world.
God bless him, our furry angels are watching over us all!!! God bless him!
