They're at it in Maine, too:


"Pineland Farms warns cross-country skiers about dive-bombing owl"

The bird struck one skier recently, and is probably protecting a nest near the Campus Loop Ski Trail, staff says.

The Squirrels are launching coordinated attacks using brainwashed owls. Oh the humanity!

Owls well that ends well, unless..OUCH! Run and HIDE!

I visited half a dozen owls (plus several hawks and a vulture) at a wildlife rehabilitator's place today. None of them attacked me (or her large dog), but I don't look like a Yorkie or a Dachshund. If you're going to act like a walking bird feeder, don't complain when a hungry owl takes you up on the offer. Put a CoyoteVest or Raptor Shield on your tasty target.

Or Carry a shotgun. Call me paranoid if you like, but I have seen an owl give a lift to a squirrel, no doubt going to one of their secret meetings where they plot the overthrow and demise of mankind.
