A Great Horned Owl and the Black Snake
Photographer: Sherry Baker
Location: Gallatin TN
As you can see in this set the snake successfully wrapped his body several time around this Great Horned Owl. We though he was dead by the time we cut the head of the snake off it continued to squeeze the owl. After my neighbor held the hoe in mid air shaking it violently the snake finally fell off and the owl we though was dead nearly took off the tops of our heads and he flew off!
