Hedwig Did It




Oh dear. Durham Attorney Larry Pollard is back in the news with his owl theory. Seems Esq. Pollard is still convinced an intrepid strigiforme is responsible for hitting Kathleen Peterson - not her crazy-ass husband - repeatedly over the head with a fireplace poker... or something like that.

Yes owls: known throughout the hallowed halls of behavioral science for their homicidal aggression.

I am sure any wildlife biologist can shoot that theory so full of holes it'll sink like a stone.

It is extremely rare for a human to be killed by an owl, or any other bird. The idea may have worked for an Alfred Hitchcock movie, but in a court of law, I don't think it'll float.

My home is surrounded by owls every night. Should I be concerned?

````When protecting young or defending itself, an Owl may assume a "threat" or defensive posture, with feathers ruffled to increase apparent size. The head may be lowered, and wings spread out and pointing down. Some species become quite aggressive when nesting, and have been known to attack humans.````

So Bill don't go too near in nesting time!!
