Monster Owl Spotted in Memphis, Fox 13's Lauren Lee Reports

Posted by Chris Davis on Fri, Oct 11, 2013 at 2:19 PM

It begins with this tweet...


For some perspective, the average owl weighs between 3 and 5 pounds. There was a photo too. Sort of.

OMG its a GIANT EFFING OWL! Or something.
  • OMG it's a GIANT EFFING OWL! Or something.

According to Fox 13's Lauren Lee the owl is a dirty rotten thief who will steal your hat. And your earbuds.



It will also snatch your squirrel. Or your dog that looks like a squirrel.


So lock up your squirrels. Or your squirrel-dogs. Stay indoors and stay tuned to Fox 13 (or at least Lauren Lee's Twitter feed) for further Monster Owl developments.

You'll also want to track down all the responses to Lee's report. And read them aloud.

I feel compelled to note that the owls are not what they seem.

Also, I hope it and the midtown coyote don't get into a fight. Oh, who am I kidding. That would be amazing!

Are they sure it's not Mothra?

If it carries squirrels away, it can't be all bad.

Barred owls are known for doing this kind of thing! Lucky he had on a hat or he might have gotten hurt. They are the second largest owl, next to Great Horned Owls. They eat a lot of birds and squirrels.

Nobody, I just checked and those two tiny island girls I keep in the bread box have escaped again.
