    Chihuahua attacked by owl on a walk, but saved by leash and vest

    The dog, Chico, and owner George Kalomiris were taking a late-night stroll in their Chicago suburb of Crystal Lake, Illinois, when a great horned owl attacked.
    Kalomiris said he lunged at the owl, which got caught in the dog's leash, and ultimately was able to scare it away.
    Chico's vest saved him because it prevented the owl's talons from digging in deeply enough to latch onto him, according to Kalomiris.

    We were warned not to leave small pets outside in the yard here. They will get scooped up by predator birds.

    That which does not kill me, better start fucking running.

    Luckily we have no lap sharks so we aren't worried about letting pets outside.
