Snakes Have to Eat, Too

One morning a couple months ago I heard a flapping commotion outside our den door. I looked out to the porch and saw a dove bravely beating a king snake with his wings.

It was morning, so the male dove was on duty on his nest while his wife rested. The snake was after the dove's chicks, and the snake won.

Now I don't want any of you carnivores shrieking "Eeew!"
