Owensboro Resident Warns Pet Owners of Hawk Threat
Angel Here! Scrolling through Facebook this morning I noticed my friend Katie Kahn posted about her puppy nearly getting attacked by a hawk in their own front yard. As a pet owner, this concerned me!
I saw another person post they saw a cat taken by an owl in another neighborhood. Please watch your smaller animals when you let them out. If they stay outside for a long period of time make sure you provide some type of shelter!
According to Hawksloft.org; Red-Tailed Hawks and Grey Horned Owls have been known to be able to carry and kill animals from 6 to 60 pounds. However, Hawks and larger birds cannot carry anything larger in weight than themselves.
