Hawk Rescued from Snake
Occurred on August 16, 2018 / Riner, Virginia, USA
Info from Licensor: "My uncle saw a snake entwined around a hawk on his property in the mountains of Virginia a week ago. He decided that he should try to save both. He grabbed his phone and started recording while another man tried to tease them apart. He surmised that the hawk must have tried to attack the snake, albeit unsuccessfully. In fact, at the beginning of the video one cannot quite tell if the hawk is alive due to the ironclad grasp of the snake. Finally, the hawk slips free and for a minute there is chaos. The confusion caused my uncle to fall, as he was afraid that they hawk might attack him. Instead, the hawk appeared grateful for the rescue and even permitted my uncle to take several pictures of him up close before taking off to hopefully find a smaller snake."
