Quote:Felipe Rodriguez says he thought he was hallucinating when an eagle snatched his sister’s little white dog from her yard, flapped its massive wings and disappeared over the trees.

Did he really just see that?

He had. Zoey the 8-pound Bichon Frise was gone, taken by a hungry raptor Tuesday afternoon not 50 feet from his sister’s house on the banks of the Lehigh River in Pennsylvania, Rodriguez said.

“It seemed like something from the ’Wizard of Oz,’” he told The Associated Press on Wednesday. “I’m a city boy. This doesn’t happen in my world.”

Even more astonishing: Zoey would live to bark the tale.

Her owner said “She doesn’t want to go out. ... I really can’t blame her.” I could imagine that would be the result of all that, poor thing. sad2.gif

That happened up where we have the cabin as well, only it was a Finnish Spitz on a leash held by my dad's cousin. It was a failed attempt by the eagle of course and the dog wasn't injured.

I was warned about letting Mason run around in the country here when he was a puppy.
Obviously, it can happen, thank god the little girl is alive, she looks like a sweetie.

Good point, people should attach a tray of meat to the top of their dog for eagles to feed from, rather than snatch the pooch.

Owls are of extraordinary intellect, I'd guess your kitty is safe.

speaking of eagles:
this morning saw the usual pair of eagles one checking out road kill with other onlooking, about half mile from house
obviously consider that area as part of their territory
