Albuquerque residents have claimed their pets are being targetted by giant owls roaming the area.
One dog owner claimed that her puppy had been killed by one and that another pet dog had been attacked. Another local, Marie Iverson, described how she'd investigated the sounds of a puppy yelping only to find it had disappeared. The head of a local zoo recommended that residents keep their pets indoors after dark as owls tend to hunt at night.
"Pet owners living in the foothills are now concerned and are keeping a close eye on their beloved pooches and cats."
