72-Year-Old Oklahoma Woman Annihilates a Bunch Of Copperhead Snakes Using a Rake, a Shovel And a Shotgun

There’s a misguided notion that by the time a woman hits her
72nd birthday, the only thing she’s really good for is
shuffling around in an old pair of slippers, forcefully showing
off pictures of the grandkids and maybe firing off the odd
batch of brownies here and there.

Not Mrs. Newby. While most of her peers were probably dozing
off in front of cable news, Mrs. Newby was savagely butchering nearly a
dozen copperhead snakes outside her home in Oklahoma. Her
weapons of choice were a shovel, a rake and a mothafuckin’
shotgun.*

Mrs. Newby’s neighbor, Susan Thompson, witnessed the massacre
firsthand and immediately took to Facebook to brag on her
behalf:

“Mrs Newby killed 11 copperheads last night at her house! She’s
a snake killer if you need help call her! She is 72 years old!”
Thompson wrote, adding that the septuagenarian serpent slayer
hung around with her arsenal for the next couple of days,
eventually laying waste to a total of 17 snakes.

Both posts were taken down not long after, maybe because while
Mrs. Newby is totally fine savaging her own snakes, she’s not
some common laborer who’s just going to travel around half the
country solving all your problems for you.

WTVD reports that Mrs. Newby only
annihilated the copperheads after discovering a tangle of them
under her home. Copperheads are not only venomous, but also
more than willing to bite, which makes them a particular type
of pest I probably wouldn’t want lying in wait under my house,
either.

*Disclaimer: Guns are entirely bad and should be illegal,
unless the gun in question belongs to Mrs. Newby and
is only used for snake murdering. Those are the
rules.
