    Hawk vs Bull Snake - YouTube


    Neat video. I like happy outcomes, but I am not sure the hawk deserves to be saved. I have seen what they do to baby birds. I wonder how the snake was able to catch the hawk in the first place. Maybe the hawk got knocked out by a passing car and before it could revive the snake already had it.

    Hope the hawk made it! My guess is the hawk tried to have the snake for dinner and the snake wanted no part of it and fought back...

    Wow! that's a great video. As fast as that hawk recovered after nearly being choked out, that guy is luck it did not clamp down on him during the rescue!

    Ya don't see that every day..
    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    Aw man! That was great. Not supposed to interfere with nature but I would have done exactly the same. I mean, ya know?...........

    I will share that on my YouTube channel. That was such a great video.

    BTW, I thought I was the only dummy that occasionally rode around in shorts with a western hat. Thanks for the support!

    I think RBM guessed right. The hawk attacked the snake and took on more than he expected. I can't picture a snake attacking a hawk, there is no way it could swallow or eat it. I was surprised at how well the hawk flew.
