Saving A Family From Actual Sea Pirates
Lassie might have saved little Jimmy from a well but Kankunto saved his entire family from real-life sea pirates. Peter Lee and his family were traveling on their 41-foot yacht when they were pursued by armed pirates. When the pirates boarded the yacht, Kankunto jumped into action, viciously attacking one of the pirates. The poor little pup was shot between his shoulder blades but amazingly survived the attack. He was nursed back to health and the pirates ran away with their figurative tails tucked between their own legs.
