Peggy Jones of Silsbee, Texas, is no stranger to danger. She has survived a snake bite, a tornado, and even a fire. But nothing could have prepared her for the attack she faced on a routine day of mowing her lawn.

It was a sunny afternoon in May when Peggy was out in her backyard, minding her own business. She was humming to herself as she pushed the lawn mower back and forth when she heard a loud noise overhead. She looked up and saw a hawk swooping down towards her.

The hawk landed on the ground in front of Peggy, its talons extended. Peggy froze, not knowing what to do. Suddenly, the hawk dropped something at her feet. It was a snake, a long, thick snake with a menacing rattle.

The snake immediately coiled around Peggy’s arm, its fangs bared. Peggy screamed and tried to shake it off, but the snake was too strong. She looked up in desperation, just in time to see the hawk swoop down again.

The hawk grabbed the snake in its talons and started to fly away. Peggy watched in horror as the snake was pulled away from her, its fangs still embedded in her arm. She felt a sharp pain and knew that she had been bitten.

The hawk flew away, taking the snake with it. Peggy was left alone, bleeding and shaken. She managed to call for help, and her husband, Wendell, came running. Wendell took Peggy to the hospital, where she was treated for her injuries.

Peggy was lucky to escape with only minor injuries. She had been bitten by the snake, but the venom did not have time to take effect. She also suffered scratches and bruises from the hawk’s talons.

The experience left Peggy shaken, but she is determined to move on. She has since returned to mowing her lawn, albeit with her husband keeping a watchful eye. She knows that she is never truly safe from danger, but she is grateful to be alive.

Peggy’s story is a reminder of the unpredictability of nature and the resilience of the human spirit. She is an inspiration to us all.

If you have ever been attacked by an animal, or if you know someone who has, please share Peggy’s story. It is important to raise awareness of these dangers and to support those who have been affected.
