Owl vs Snake fight to the death - Bill and I rode into a campground and saw a bird attacking something. We parked the bikes and headed over to where we thought the animal was located. All of a sudden an owl about one and a half foot tall popped up out of the weeds with a snake wrapped around its body from talons to  mouth. It immediately fell over in a struggle. We headed to the end of the trail and when we passed back through the owl was still struggling. We left toward the end of False Cape and on the way back though we stopped and the owl was gone. Owl WIN!
We did not see and pigs except for where they root around in the weeds.
