Unwelcomed Guest Relocated to Kentucky

Who you might ask?

A juvenile Great Horned Owl that's who...Hoo Hoo Hoo Hoo (sorry, had to).

Not a welcomed guest - at all. The total loss was 16 hens. We think Junior got in during the night and then was dismayed to discover he didn't know how to get out after the crime. After some set-up for a humane capture we wrangled him into the animal carry-all and relocated him to the woods near Scottsville, Kentucky. Watch out for those talons they'll go right through ya!

Here is some on-the-farm (as opposed to street)-eyewitness-footage of this beautiful bird.
