Attack of the Great Horned Owl – A Dramatic Reinactment

Back in the summer I wrote about my close encounter with a Great Horned Owl at the Ptarmigan mine outside Yellowknife.  It all happened so fast, and I barely got a look at the owl as it barreled into my head.

Thanks to the wonders of YouTube and ultra slo-mo, I now have a vivid reninactment of what an owl attack might actually look like (if we were able to slow down time considerably).  Keep in mind that this is an Eagle Owl, which looks much bigger than the owl that came at me. 

It’s a little scary and also incredibly beautiful, especially from the 32-second mark on.  I strongly encourage you to watch it in its full 1080p HD glory for maximum effect.
