Eagle Owl Attacking People In My Area.

Recommended Posts

Got a phonecall from my friend an hour ago who told me to go straight to his house as the escaped eagle owl is in his back garden on the fence post preying on his cat. I drove along his house which is 5 minutes from me and it was still there just watching the cat through his conservatory window. I managed to get a little shot which il upload. As i walked into the garden i got a shot of it before it took off. What a huge bird.. Its been local to the area for around 2 and a half year as it eacaped captivity but no one has botherd trying to get her back. Apparently its a 7 yr old female.. She made headlines last year after attacking a young boy who was on a late night jog lucky the boy had his hood up as he got struck on the back of the head but still he sufferd some sort of whiplash. The owl has been known to of taken quite a few cats in the area as lots have gone missing since it was first spotted. Heres the article about the boy who got struck and il also upload the picture i managed to get :). Now iv seen it with my own eyes im now keen as hell to get out an trap this bird to stop all the neusance in the area also just to see the bird back with its owner.. Or should i not get involved???? Heres the link and il follow with my pic.. Also i will add a video of a guy that managed to video it in his back garden charging at him lol. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2207899/Teenager-left-whiplash-attacked-eagle-owl.html / http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0VUwjmivwQg&sns=em

be worth trying to trap it for sure, theres a male harris on the loose local to me, some kids got a pair of them and unwisely decided to let the male og and see if it would come back,, daft twats :censored: am pretty sure it will survive at least a couple of days give us a chance to catch him up hopefully, hate to see stuff just left, :censored:

The 'norm' is to imprint them from chicks, I guess that explains the fearless aggression......those are feet I wouldn't want coming at me
