Dear Person or Persons who are pissing off the bubo virginianuses in the neighborhood park,
Here is an interesting fact about Great Horned Owls, some of which are obviously pretty annoyed with you right now.
The crushing power in a Great Horned’s talons is reputed to be an incredible 500 lbs. per square inch, ten times stronger than the grip of a human hand, so once the talons sink through the prey’s back, most prey are killed instantly.
In addition, I imagine taking a hit from a bird that can weigh five pounds and move at 40 mph would be exactly like getting hit by a feather pillow.
If said pillow was wrapped around a boxer’s fist.
In short, don’t come crying to me when your face is hanging from a tree branch.
