That will make a great story.

And there is no way in hell I mess with a horned owl, let alone put it in my car.  Tear you to pieces.

That sounds fairly not too weird for Alaska, honestly.
 
2014-04-16 08:31:30 PM
In fairness, I'd have to know the state to answer that.

Hunter S Thompson suggests you avoid the bats when you deal with the owl

Nope normal usually involves at least a donkey and a 7-iron somewhere in the mix. This situation is just too weird.

I don't know how anyone has a Chihuahua in Alaska.

It's like you're TRYING to feed the wildlife.

SPOILER ALERT

The owl died.

So what do you think will happen in the next episode?

Will the owl's family seek revenge?

Will Graywing the King of the Great Horned Owls fly north to mediate a treaty?

Who will take advantage and have sex with the chihuahua while it is scared and vulnerable in its convalescence?

If the mom gets the opportunity, will she kill herself?

Will anyone make flowers on anyone in the next three weeks?

Will the good Samaritan marry the vet? If so, will the vet be poisoned at the wedding?

END SPOILERS

That article was well written. Would read again.

 I have a Chihuahua in the front seat, a great horned owl in the back seat .....

Is it Friday, Friday?

What I'm wondering is why the chihuahua isn't in the great horned owl, but then, come to think of it, that might explain why he is bleeding all over the car.

Maybe some of the northern squirrels have never seen a rat??? I mean, we're *all* interested in our family trees.

Chihuahuas are indoor pets anywhere North of the snow line. They'd freeze their tiny butts off in any month with an "r" in it.

Our dog was part dachshund and it was funny to watch him run in the snow. You'd see his head pop up every couple of feet. He wasn't so much running as hopping like a mouse.

We got a lot more snow in those days. My brother ran to the end of the drive way once and disappeared. Poof! Like magic. There was a drift of soft new snow that was invisible and so, for a moment, was he. Just gone in an instant.

I once had a hawk try to steal my exes shih tzu (stupid little dog) through the passenger window of my jeep. It was riding looking out the window. Fortunately the window was rolled up. As the giant talons clicked on the window I thought, "That might mess up my marriage if I had to explain the missing dog." Meh

My initial reaction was....wait a second lady, you live in Homer Alaska, that in and of itself is not normal.

Feeding a predator is about the only use I can think of for a chihuahua.
 
2014-04-16 10:16:46 PM
Great story, and well written. A pic of an owl carrying a chihuahua away would have been hilarious a nice addition.

And you don't keep chihuahuas as "pets" in Alaska; they are "emergency food rations".

I'm shocked and appalled this woman cared more about finding someone to take the owl than rushing the poor dog to a vet. That's like trying to save a tiger that just mauled a child. Wtf is wrong with people?!

You're kidding right?

I get the idea that the dog is worth saving more because its suffering/death might hurt its owner's feeling where the wild owl's suffering/death will potentially hurt a any human's less.  But neither can be compared to a human child.

Well that was horrible to read :(

So the owls have multiplied due to their foot increasing, but now their food is in decline so they are desperate and starving :(  Time for a mouse plague.

She grabbed the owl then let it go without making sure her dog was free? That was stupid. And not to go all ITG but she should have killed it. It knows there's food there now so it'll likely be back.
 
2014-04-17 07:33:51 AM
So who gets the owl, me or the dog?

(should have called a bambulance).

If something grabbed my corgi puppy I don't think I would stop to care what the heck it was, I'd go in swinging... and keep swinging until it let go. Pup is a big emotional and monetary investment that I'm not willingly willing to part with.

/'course now she's growing up so  I don't have to worry like owners with a feeder chihuahua.
 
2014-04-17 08:28:02 AM
Thank goodness they both survived because I love dogs & owls, but if you live in a part of the country where there is a possibility of owls getting you dogs, then you need these:

I can't believe you didn't mention it was a wimmen driver.

If a wild animal tried killing my dog, 100% of my concern is for my dog.
