Brave Dog With Knife Stuck Squarely in Head Chases Robbers


bella knife forehead dog Excuse me, but there's something on your face. 

Bella, a brave six-year-old Alsatian/terrier mix, was seen happily running in the street minutes after she was brutally attacked by criminals she'd prevented from breaking in last week. But what makes this story especially peculiar is that she did not appear to notice the large KNIFE handle protruding from her forehead! Wha?!

Brave little Bella was attacked while defending a neighbour's property in Stellenbosch, South Africa. Bella's owner Vernon Swart said his neighbors called him to tell him that they had seen a burglar trying to break into their house "They said they had spotted someone in their garden, but when they saw them, the guy ran off," Mr Swart, 52, told the Telegraph.

Swarts neighbors then related to him that Bella was seen running around the street with a knife in her head. "I couldn't believe it when I saw her. She hardly seemed to have noticed at all."

Not a care in the world

As if this story couldn't get any more disturbing, Swart quickly rushed Bella to the vet and, oddly, she seemed quite happy. Not a care in the world. In fact, Swart recounted that on the way to the vet she was banging the knife against the car's window..thump, thump, thump. The vet couldn't believe what he was seeing either.

After five or six stitches Bella reportedly didn't even seem to notice what had happened. Now that is one kick-ass dog, wouldn't you agree?

Swart has reportedly handed over the knife to police in the hope they may be able to dust the handle for fingerprints.
