After finding nearly a dozen copperheads under her home in Lequire, Oklahoma, last week, a 72-year-old woman handled the venomous villains like a boss with the aide of her shotgun and a shovel.
Sometime after Mrs. Newby killed the snakes, her neighbor, Susan Thompson, happened to stop by and was more than impressed with what the elderly woman had done. Thompson snapped a photo and posted the story on Facebook.
“Mrs. Newby killed 11 copperheads last night at her house,” Thompson captioned the photo. “She’s a snake killer. If you need help call her.”
And apparently, according to Newby’s family, she also killed a five and a half foot western diamondback last month. Snake killer indeed.

Marlin once claimed their Model 39 as the eldest continually produced, shoulder-fired rifle of all time. Though that record ended when the Marlin brand was parted-off to Ruger, the rimfire world is anticipating a return of this classic.
