Why do I assume this lady is related to @Satanica ?
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Distraught by a snake targeting her beloved backyard birds and squirrels, an 89-year-old woman took matters into her own hands, killing the 6-foot-long serpent with a hammer to its head.
Garlene Eiceman had been noticing birds were missing from one of her feeders at her Tallahassee woman and that no other birds were returning. She initially thought there was something wrong with the feed she was using, but after a visit to a pet stores, she learned the feed was fine.
About three weeks ago, Eiceman looked on in horror when she saw a snake slither out of a bird box where she'd been watching a nest of three baby blue birds be tended by their parents.
The snake's throat had a tell-tale bulge.
"I started crying, I didn’t know what to do," said Eiceman, a great-grandmother of six and a grandmother of six, who goes by the nickname Grandma Bunny. "The snake went down and up a wooden flower box and it went out of sight. After that all the birds disappeared.”
She removed all the places a snake could hide, including all the bird houses. Eventually she spotted the snake. As soon as she did she ran and grabbed a hammer and a twig.
“He would go thin and wiggle out from under the twig, I would run after him and finally I turned my hammer sideways and I got him good,” she said. "I was so angry with that snake."
An 89-year old Tallahassee woman killed a six-foot snake in her backyard yard after it ate most of her birds in three weeks.
