I have seen this several times over the past week. Some people report that town owls actually catch cats and small dogs at night. If you have a small pet, it may be best to watch it.
We have received reports of an owl on the north side of town as well as in the area near O’Leary Middle School. I live in this area and someone actually posted in the “neighborhood” feature of the doorbell app that we got that they had spotted an owl basking on small animals.
There are bound to be owls and wild animals everywhere. Just to let you know, owls are on the list of state protected birds, so killing these creatures is illegal. It is also highly illegal to shoot a firearm within city limits.
The best way to take care of your small pets is to bring them indoors at night and / or watch them when they go out. I don’t know what else you can do, but it’s a good idea to share the information.
For the record, the only birds that are not illegal to shoot are starlings, Eurasian collared doves, English sparrows, and wild pigeons. All hawks, owls, eagles and vultures are protected. There are also hunting rules that must be followed to pest birds and game birds.
