A 72-year-old woman who found herself facing an unusual number of copperhead snakes had a unique but effective way to deal with the snakes when she happened to run out of ammunition for her 20-gauge shotgun.
The woman, identified only as Mrs. Newby, killed more than a dozen copperhead snakes with a shovel at her home near Kinta, Oklahoma.
Family members told KOTV that Newby killed 11 snakes one night, and four more the next night.
Newby’s family also said her weapon of choice was a 20-gauge shotgun, and when she runs out of shells, her next choice is a shovel.
Family members said the grandmother believed there was a den of vipers under her old house trailer.
That’s about the time I’d be calling in an expert to rid my property of any and everything that slithers across land.
Mrs Newby killed 11 copperheads last night at her house ! She's a snake killer if you need help call her ! She is 72 years old
