Sorta like what the DNC did to Bernie. Or Stalin v. Hitler. The analogies are endless.

That is something I have never seen in person either. I am not a snake fan, but any thing that kills coopeheads can’t be all bad.

Excellent! I had heard of it but never seen it happen.
I'm trying to get some sort of scale. Assuming those are not giant leaves, then neither of those is a very big snake. Correct? The copperhead doesn't look much smaller than the king snake though.

Awesome! I've seen a few speckled king snakes on my place, but never saw one eat a copperhead. What an experience!
Do what you say you're gonna do.

The shape of the head would have been a quick identifier, but Mr. King Snake didn't allow you that view!
Still plenty of justification for letting the non-venomous snakes be.

It looks like a rat snake to me. Normally I feel that most snakes are beneficial to the environment, particularly anything called a Rat Snake. However, our local biologist recommends eliminating rat snakes whenever we find them because they're very detrimental to ground nesting birds (like turkeys).
