Phil’s (Really) Big Brother

February 22, 2006

Most of us have heard of giant tortoises, maybe even giant squids. But giant owls?

Yes, the European eagle owl is a Yoda-sized* critter with a 6-foot wingspan. This magnificent owl has even been spotted trying to snack on neighborhood dogs. Said one distraught pet owner:

It is very frightening for Heidi [a wire-haired dachshund] to have this giant bird trying to eat her all the time….She is spending her days at the moment trying to hide in our house curled up by a chair.

Yikes!

Orange Bear is keeping a watchful eye on Phil the Owl. Just to be on the safe side.

*Being 2 feet, 2 inches tall.
