The picture of the owl is pretty, but owls are dangerous around small animals. Back 10 years ago my daughter had a beautiful Persian cat. The cat loved to lay on our deck; she liked to sun herself. One day Eve forgot that the cat was on the deck. When my daughter went out to get her, an owl had slit her stomach down the middle, ate all her insides. All that was left was the cat’s limp body, needless to say everyone was upset over it. So while the owl might be pretty and rare, they are dangerous.
