Hawk vs. snake (vs. car?) in Echo Park

hawk-snake-eastsiderla.jpgQuite a photo over at The Eastsider LA. The blog says it appears that the hawk became tangled up with the snake (apparently a harmless gopher snake) and got hit by a car and stunned. As onlookers watched, the raptor laid in the street on Scott Avenue unmoving for several minutes while the snake unraveled itself and slithered away. The hawk then flew off. So perhaps it's all well that ends well. More at Eastsider LA. Photo by David A.
