Hawk throws a SNAKE at a moving car

Australian drivers are often warned to look out for critters that stray onto the road. But there was no avoiding this snake as it was dropped onto a moving car (circled) by a hawk in Queensland. A motorist called Joanne was driving near the Wivenhoe Dam, west of Brisbane, when the bird of prey suddenly swooped towards her vehicle. She and her passengers screamed as the bird swept across the road with a large snake between its claws. The driver’s dash camera captured the moment the hawk let go of the serpent, sending it slamming into the windscreen. The bird quickly took off into the skies, leaving Joanne and her friends in shock. But their screams soon turned to laughter as they realised they were fine.
