thanks for your honest answer, i am studying vet tech and going to specialize in wildlife probably zoo and wildlife rehab so i took an oath to protect animals so dont think i would dare hurt any animal.
Red tails are small in weight half the weight of the great horned owl which preys on them. Red tails can take six foot rat tails but not always sometimes snakes do turn tables on hawks because choking a raptor is the easiest way to kill it. Great horned owls usually have their way though. Mostly eagles are the expert snake killers that will kill huge snakes as recorded a brown snake eagle took a 10 foot mamba. Depends on the method of the bird of prey attacks. They must tire the snake out or man handle it the right way if not they can get choked by a very small snake.

The bullsnake is too heavy for the hawk to carry means it weighs more than the hawk. HAppens a lot when BOP hunt snakes. Snakes o a bop is like chicken to a fox.
Minks are the worst snake killers cause there is no way a snake can counter attack them.
Coons I rehab would just smash through anything to get at any snake and eat it alive. The bites dont bother coons, badgers are the same, also fishers. They wont bother killing they will just start chomping on them.
Unless it is a python of course
The only animal i have seen take a large boia is a german shepherd, the boa ate a hen so the owner let their dog tear the snake to beats. The dog just got its head so 500lbs of presure ended the snake. BUT i dont like this and consider that animal cruelty i would have stopped it if i was there.
I have seen eagles kill the mature green tree pythons and the giant monkey eating eagle has gone after half grown retics.
Many creatures drool at the thought of snake which is why also indigo cant just go roaming as it pleases, there is so much danger
