A brave boy showed how a real cowboy kicks a snake out of a hen house.
In Hockley, Texas, a family noticed that a snake had managed to slither into their hen house. Much to the chicken’s dismay, the reptile made himself right at home. The snake appeared to angle itself just out of reach and cozied up under a wooden platform.
While most people might have attempted to shoot the snake, the boy, Chipper, appeared with only a piece of rope. Instead of letting his family use the gun on the far side of the hen house, Chipper lassoed with his rope. The child captured the snake on the first try by securing the rope around its neck. Not only was the boy’s lasso toss flawless, but the rope’s distance ensured that the child did not have to get close to the snake.
The boy pulled the snake to the floor with a massive grin on his face. If stretched out, the reptile appeared to be longer than the boy. It slid across the ground as squeals appeared in the back of the video.
“What are you going to do with it?” the person behind the camera asked curiously.
