Yikes! that would scare me for sure. A few years back we had s rather large owl in the area. I always hear them but figures they re just the common owl but one late afternoon there was one sitting on my fence and I would say it was about 2 ft tall, it hung around for a few days. I found out later that my neighbors cat disappeared. WE are pretty sure it was the owl that carried it off as we saw nothing...

Wow - I asked my vet when we got Poodlekid last spring - he was sooo tiny - and we have so many owls on our property. She was of the opinion that owls would not see him as prey since they go for much smaller animals usually (she said mostly mice and very rarely squirrels). She did warn me about Eagles that will attempt big prey even if they can't lift off.

Large birds of prey like eagles and osprey can handle 5-7 pound fish with not too much problem. We have bald eagles including the two young ones that fledged this summer and their parents. The parents stay up near the harbor adjacent to the nest (which they are already adding to) so I am not concerned about them but the youngsters wander about and have been seen close by so I always send a dog out to watch over the chickens when they are loose if I can't watch them myself.

Oh my! I just heard a story on CBC about how to live along with polar bears - was it in Churchill? Anyways, I am much more afraid of polar bears (and grizzlies) than our black bears. For the most part we coexist fine here. Itís only when people leave out bear attractants:(
How often to you encounter polar bears??

Don't forget that crocs and alligators can move really fast on land.

Eek! Iím sure you are familiar with it ó I would certainly be anxious there. I feel comfortable in my neck of the woods and get irritated when certain family members wonít go for a walk with me because they are afraid of bears and cougars, but I guess itís what youíre used to...

Not really! Zephyr and I are just visiting for a month, we are from Minnesota. I am told that the crocodile has been relocated and is not there anymore, but they relocated it once before and it came right back so nobody is really sure. We are keeping alert!

Wow! Crazy owls? Here in San Diego people put up Owl Boxes to attract owls! They want them for rat/mouse control! People even put webcams in them so eggs/chicks can be watched!
Now hawks and coyotes are a different problem! NOBODY leaves small dogs loose in their backyards unattended anymore here!

No Thankyou. We have plenty alligators here. Fortunately not a usual occurrence where I live but it is not unheard of for one to wander and end up in someone's pond. My friend lives in a different subdivision in the next town (20 min) has pond behind her house and they have had to call Wildlife & fisheries 2x to remove a stray gator. People see them just floating on the water and think they a slow creatures, they are not and can move swift ly even on land.
