Where I live owls, eagles, hawks, and coyotes are an issue for small pets. One just has to be aware that the world is a big place with varied threats to small pets. Most of us here don't allow our pets out unaccompanied - even though it isn't always convenient

I don't blame the owl- he was hungry! But I am still glad the dog's buddy saved him!

Wow , What a story , Glad the dogs & owl were okay , I agree w / Jeanne Y. don't let pets outside w/ out
a human escort not if you live in the country .
Our pug and pekingese are so well trained they won't go past the back step without me even though the yard
is fully fenced .
Thanks Marty

What a story. It's amazing this owl went after an animal that has to be about 20lbs.
