Oregon officials are warning early morning joggers and park visitors in the state capital, Salem, to watch out for an owl that steals hats after at least four people were attacked in a month.
No one was seriously hurt in any of the incidents but Brad Hilliard, 36, is one of the joggers who have lost headwear in a brush with the bird.
“It was kind of amazing how it just swooped down and grabbed my hat like that,” Hilliard said.
“It just pulled it right off my head like it was nothing!”
Keith Keever, the city’s parks superintendent, said officials had never heard of a case like it before.
