I've seen several post where people say snakes will not eat golf balls. This snake ate 2 eggs and a chick under a broody mother. I wasn't sure what had got the chick as I was traveling for business. At the time I didn't have any golf balls in the nest so I put another egg and a golf ball in to see what happened. Next day there was the snake (Bull Snake) and egg and golf ball were gone. When I first saw the snake the ball was a bit farther down. Maybe it could have regurgitated it. It took some time but I did get the golf ball out without killing the snake, not sure if it hurt or not. Bull snakes are beneficial so I left the snake in the middle of 1000+ acres to do snake stuff.
