Norwich, UK - 2 March 2006: Giant Eagle Owl Attacks Five Dogs.

A giant owl has been terrorizing the area around Saxlingham Nethergate, near Norwich. At least five dogs have been repeatedly targeted by the European eagle owl - the biggest of all the owl species.

On one occasion, an 84-year-old man, Jack Simmons, had to wade in with a broom handle to fend off the bird, which has a wingspan of more than 5ft, after it swooped from a roof and tried to grab Heidi, his 13-year-old miniature wire-haired dachshund.
