Center warns skiers of owl in foul mood

Friday, January 12, 2018

NEW GLOUCESTER, Maine -- Officials at a Maine outdoor center are warning skiers to watch out for an "aggressive dive-bombing" owl that recently struck a man. Pineland Farms says in a Facebook post the owl cut the man's head when it attacked, and neither skiers nor trail groomers have seen the bird since. Pineland said the owl is protecting a nest near a cross-country ski trail. They believe the bird is either a barred owl or a great horned owl.
