Iím used to wildlife country but I havenít experienced this on a walk yet! It made me rethink my wooly brown toque with fluffy pom-pom - maybe look like a squirrel from the top?!

Better put kevlar vests and little helmets on "the poodle kids" for their protection as well!

Wow! I never saw something like that either. Yeah, keep those dogs close to you. Holy smokes! At least you have standards. I really need to watch out and keep my wee ones close when we're out and about. They would definitely make a snack for one of those big birds.

Yes, the little ones would be the right size to make a meal. We had barn owls that lived next door to us, and they kept dropping rabbit heads on the awning of my girls' tree fort. Oh my,did those girls squeal when there was a bunny head with no body on their "roof"!

Wow Charmed - I wouldíve been traumatized by bodyless bunnies!
We have tons of eagles too (wintering site for bald eagles) and my friend is paranoid about her little dog. Our dog walker has convinced her the eagles will snatch her up, and I guess they probably could judging by the size of salmon they grab.
I am glad I have the standards

That must be the body that turned up in my yard! I let Zephyr out and he came back with a headless rabbit body. I didn't think he had done it himself, but couldn't figure out what else might have happened until a friend told me that owls like to tear the heads off and then come back later for the body. What a relief for me not to have to suspect Zephyr of beheading a poor bunny, and not to worry about him having eaten it. The poor owl missed out when he came back to get it, tho.

Wow asuk, polar bears? Yikes. I had a friend who survived being mauled by a polar bear. He has huge scars down his back and was very lucky.

We have warning signs for coyotes. But I know two people who lost dogs to birds of prey. A hawk got a young puppy and an eagle got a small dog. Both were out in the backyard off leash with their owners. Pretty scary and devastatingly sad.

Those rabbit heads without a body are unpleasant surprises.

Wow it would sure hurt to have owl talons sink into one's scalp!


I heard once of a chihuahua being carried off out of an outdoor show ring by a hawk. The handler held on for dear life to no avail. How freaky sad.
