(UPI) A Louisiana woman captured video of the unusual scene that played out in her yard when she spotted an owl holding a large snake in its beak.
Marilyn Lambert posted a video to Facebook showing an owl perched on a tree branch while a large snake dangles from its mouth.
The snake wriggles in the owl's grasp and the bird apparently decides the snake is more trouble than its worth, as it flies over Lambert's lawn and drops the serpent in the grass.

Lambert said her husband went out a short time later to determine whether the snake was still alive and he observed the owl return and carry the reptile away.Copyright 2018 by United Press International
