Snake strangling falcon- Utahbirds.org
It didn't happen in Missouri but it could have. Charlie Burwick shared this story of a falcon and snake battle with me. It occurred appropriately enough on the Lower Snake River. The moral of the story is that the predator doesn't always win. See this posting from utahbirds.org.
It has a happy ending for both although the dazed falcon was still hungry.
