Owl Attacks Canadian Trapper

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Canadian trapper says an owl viciously attacked him while he was checking his rabbit snares one night this week, leaving his face bloodied.


Kevin O`Neil, 55, of Digby County in Nova Scotia, told the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. the attack occurred Tuesday night while he was checking his traps after a day of lobster fishing.

O`Neill, who said he`s recovering from his wounds, theorized the bird may have been protecting a nest."


It seems like humans have declared war on the animal kingdom, a zoo in Denmark kills a healthy giraffe and then dissects it in front of children, and this Canadian fellow spends all his time trapping rabbits and lobster fishing.

The trapper theorizes that the owl may have been protecting its nest, but I think the owl has had enough of humans killing and butchering animals for fun and profit.

The owl`s talons ripped into the man`s forehead, narrowly missing his right eye. Maybe he will find a hobby that doesn`t involve trapping bunnies in painful traps.
