 Can a black ratsnake eat a copperhead or rattlesnake?

I live in Stonebluff oklahoma and have a major outbreak over the last few years with coppers and rattlers. I have been moving speckled and prairie kings into the area but they only get so large. I am pretty sure as a kid I watched a large black snake eat a copperhead I chopped up with a mower but I’m not sure if it was a king or a rat.....

It was most likely a king. Black rats are not known to be ophiophagus.
