Mother Gaia's enforcers

I want one:

A GIANT owl that devours foxes and small deer is terrorising shoppers and drinkers in a town centre.

Experts say the bird is capable of killing a fox or small deer and warn pet owners to watch their animals.

There's a bird in Tulsa attacking joggers, but authorities don't know what type it is yet.

In 2004, my first full year of this house, my yard was patrolled by a platoon of blue jays, who had two nests on the premises and would not take guff from anything, be it shrike, squirrel, or meter reader.

I think this character would make a fine replacement, what with the jays having bailed out of late.

I particularly like how it's terrorising shoppers and drinkers. That's one perceptive owl.

Down here it's the mockinbirds you have to watch out for.

In the Gulf last war, we had a white owl on board. I don't know how or when it came aboard, but I discovered it one night while doing security rounds in the cargo handling area (a large enclosed space extending for about half the length of the ship).

There I was, walking along, minding my own business, when this big bird - BIG bird - dropped out of the overhead directly in front of me, spread its wings with a loud "whooomp!", and took off flying down the deck.

I almost pooped my pants. Really.

Don't worry, he's just chopping broccoli.
