HUGE OWL TRIES TO CARRY OFF DOGS IN UK VILLAGE
From the London Telegraph : "Over the past fortnight, at least five dogs have been repeatedly targeted by the European eagle owl...
"84-year-old Jack Simmons had to wade in with a broom handle to fend off the bird, which has a wingspan of more than 5ft, after it swooped from a roof and tried to grab Heidi, his 13-year-old miniature wire-haired dachshund."
"It is very frightening for Heidi to have this giant bird trying to eat her all the time," said Mr Simmons. "I have no doubt that it wants to make her into its next meal. I guess Heidi looks like a rabbit or a tasty snack."
