Owls Attack in Bangor City Forest 

Last year it was bears scaring off outdoor enthusiasts at Bangor’s city forest…now it’s…owls?Cross-country skiers who hit the trails at night are reporting being targeted by an angry great horned owl…Over the past three weeks, at least eight skiers and a few dogs have apparently have fallen victim to the owl, who’s swooped down with its talons outstretched and smacks them on the head…Jim Allen of Bangor was skiing on the East Trail recently when he was whacked in the back of the head…Because he was wearing a hat, he didn’t get scratched..But according to a local doctor, at least three other skiiers suffered small lacerations…Fortunately, none needed stitches.
