Spoke to SO earlier who is in Ballito. He was visiting his brother who lives in one of those eco-estates with lots of birds and antelope. They were braaing when suddenly a huge owl swooped down and grabbed their cat!!!! :shock: O-/ Luckily, Tigger fought back and the owl dropped him. He ran back inside and is obviously quite traumatised but otherwise unhurt!! 0-

I would be devastated if an owl took one of my animals!! :no:
