They are lucky the owl did not attack their eyes and could have done serious damage indeed.

My Guess is that it's a tame owl that's become
separated from it's owner...prolly trying to
get back home.

The last few frames of the video show the same type
Great Horned Owl on a gloved hand (The proper way
to carry one for display, demonstration, or hunting.)

I'd search for a raptor rescue/rehabilitation
facility in the area...
..perhaps the owner may have tried to "FREE" the
owl.. assuming it would simply revert to the wild(?)

As I assumed **
the owl wasn't trying to attack people,
he was merely attempting to perch on them
and people became startled by the encounter.




**I did a 1,000 hours of volunteer time in
an environmental center in Northern Jersey.

3 Great Horned Owl feathers on my MousePad:

Too bad it wasn't shot. Was it a snowy owl? I understand they taste a lot like bald eagle. grin

As stated several times + Video,
it was a Great Horned Owl, and
not sure about tasting just like
Bald Eagle...but it does taste
remarkably like Golden Eagle, to
which I also have feathers of,
but no time to snap more picts. crazy

Unless it has been repealed, The Migratory Bird Treaty Act makes it illegal to possess bird feathers without a permit.
