I had something similar happen years ago as I was driving east on the West Kentucky Parkway. I spotted a hawk right on the edge of the highway about a half-mile ahead of me and kept an eye on it. When I got within about 200 yards, the hawk started flapping and I could see he had grabbed a big snake. Since I was doing about 75, I came up on him pretty fast. The ol' redtail decided he wasn't going to make it, so he dropped the snake right in front of me and gained altitude. I remember thinking if someone weren't paying attention and that hawk dropped a snake on their hood, it could easily cause a bad wreck. Most of the time buzzards will just continue eating their kill, but I've seen a few of them decide to fly and barely miss cars in the traffic lanes, too.

I THINK...that hawk had a terrific sense of humor! LOL!

Now, as for the toddler...THAT was truly horrifying! Thank God the Golden(?) dropped him: certainly before he gained altitude, but THINK what was in store for that kid had the eagle made it to his nest with it!!!!! GEEEZE!!!

I wonder if that Hawk thought he'd dropped that snake in on KyFisherman's place so he'd fry it up for him??;):rolleyes: WD
