What a patient and trusting dog!! Those beaks and talons can be deadly. Did the voice on the tape say it is a baby owl? Feathers look a little downy.
Precious video. Looks like both animals are getting up in years. Guess, they just need a little companionship. This is truly priceless.
YES IT IS A BABY OWL. IT COULD DO SOME REAL DAMAGETO THE DOG IF IT WANTED TO
What an interesting couple.
Such a nice video!
With all these pictures of different animals getting along, I’m thinking it may be the last days and fulfiling Biblical prophecy:”…and the lion shall lay down with the lamb…”
It looks like a baby ‘great-horned owl’. They can do a great deal of damage with their huge talons, which lock in place (a ‘death-grip’), when they grab something or someone. You have to pry each one of those talons out of whatever they latch on to, either to attack, kill, or move their prey. Their beaks can & do shred flesh to eat. The dog in the video, at times, looked uneasy as those talons & beak neared it’s eyes. I know that I wouldn’t want or trust it that up-close and personal to my face and eyes. It’s true that some can be trained to perform in shows, but greats are considered extremely aggressive & dangerous, as they fear no one. They’ve been known to attack humans without provocation. Smaller owls are much friendlier and far less dangerous.
i think this is one of the most precious exchanges between 2 animals ive ever seen..it is just precious..the dog looked like he needed some tlc..luved it..
Enjoyed this species interaction.
How wonderful:) Dog just lays there and let’s the owl primp his fur without either of them hurting the other.
What is that video about a kitten being BOILED TO DEATH??????? I won’t click on that, but should someone be reported to the police? Has anyone seen it? Is it real?
Missed that one … thank goodness!! Wouldn’t be anything like that on this site.
Never seen anything like this. I thought owls slept in the daytime. This one is wide awake.
Watching this very early AM….what a way to start my day. Awesome video…..
“Why can’t we all just get along”….who is the “dumb” animal?
It isn’t a Great Horned owl. If you click on the arrow on the lower left hand side and then watch it at YOUTUBE your questions will be answered.
“This is an Eagle Owl. it is not native to North America. We are licensed by the Federal government to posess her.”
(corrected MY typos)
Awesome bird, whatever it is!!
I love Katy.. I asked her to prom in my video.. it’s my dream.. please help me achieve it by watching and spreading my video..? it’d mean so much!
WHO IS KATY?
I’m with you, gramms, not only who is Katy, but who made the comment that they loved her? There is no name on that comment! Just curious!!!
Think the “Katy” mentioned is Katy Perry? Someone wants a date? We need your name and website to vote “Posted on April 20th”.
Hi! “DeWitch” I have a couple of questions ~ what do you do with these raptors? You say you have a government license to possess her, and I assume other birds of prey; do you use them to educate the public, or what? I’ve seen them trained and used in shows, like at Marine World, and in Oahu. How long have you had “Wee”? Was she much younger than she was in this film, when you obtained her? Is that why she was so tender with the dog? Are eagle owls less aggressive than great horned owls? Perhaps the one I found would have been mellower, had it been much younger, and willing to bond to us. As a 9 or 10 year old, on my way to school(back in the 50′s), I found a baby screech owl sitting on the driveway at my bus stop. I’d always been close to animals, so didn’t fear it, other than I was wearing short sleeves that day and ended up with alot of scratches and punctures on my arms, from it’s talons. He bonded with us and was alot of fun. My mom bought him his own raw meat, which our cat was very unhappy with, and would walk around and around, hoping to snatch some, which we did feed him, but he wanted more! He teased the bird, but they did bond, except at feeding!
“jadaj”, who is Katy Perry? And how did you come to think it was about a date???? Just curious!! So many questions, and so few answers!
Think the guy meant a girl at school he “loves” and wants to go to the prom with him. I said Katy Perry, a singer. Was teasing. He wanted us to watch his video and vote but he forgot to leave his link. Hope she went to the prom with him.
