RIP Grass Snake

We are keeping our 4-legged niece this weekend. Cady is a Jack Russell Terrier and unlike our dogs she is a hunter. I was digging and planting in our flowerbeds yesterday morning, when the familiar gray grass snake slithered out of the dirt. The snake was young and only about a foot long. As soon as I saw it moving I knew what would happen. Cady saw it. She pounced in amazing speed and snatched the snake in her mouth and whipped her head until the snake broke into two pieces. She killed it in less than three seconds after seeing it. I saw the whole thing go down and it was so interesting to see Cady use her instinct to kill. It was also sad for the snake.
