JIM: Chicken 1, Snake 0
The following article made the front page of the Adair County News on September 6, 1911 - and it wasn't even a slow news week!
A Terrific Battle - Eats 'm Alive
Mr. W.T. McFarland, Mayor of this city, reports a fierce encounter between a chicken, frying size, and snake. On last Saturday he noticed a chicken making a heroic effort to pass through this world, and found that a snake about a foot long had seized the chicken near its head, and was hanging on.
The chicken run until it could not further go, and at this juncture the fowl began pecking the tail end of the snake and soon had it all swallowed except about two inches, and the snake was still clinging to the chicken's feathers near its head.
This condition lasted for a few minutes, the chicken trying to swallow, and the snake trying to get out. Finally the reptile let loose, and was soon in the craw of the chicken. - Jim
