Cats are hunters,that is why mine is a house cat. Too bad about the squirell.
I did a search for that owl...holy crap that is a big one.
Yes! The Great Horned Owl has an appropriate name.
About ten years ago I was sitting out back when I saw something standing in the flower garden up
on the hill. It looked like a log at first. I grabbed the binoculars and saw that it was moving and
then it turned it's head as to look right at me. I saw what it was and shocked to see it standing on
the ground. I walked towards it and when I got a few yards from it, it flew in a tree. I then proceeded
to shoo it and it was flying from tree to tree. It finally flew out of sight.
It was extremely odd and I would say rather rare, to see one standing on the ground like that. They
normally stay at the edge limbs in trees. When they see food, they will swoop down and grab it and
take it back to their nest.
I know they got to eat like everything else but I don't like them on my property. They are known to
kill cats and even small dogs.
