"‘Unstable’ Hollywood Park owl attacks four people"

A commenter points me to the North Central News for more owl attacks in Hollywood Park. (previous post here)

Hollywood Park Police Lt. J. Quintero said his department has permission from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Department to “neutralize” an owl that has attacked four people, sending one to the hospital.

The four victims were all attacked by an owl while walking late at night or in the early morning, either in the 500 block of Rue de Matta Street or at the Voight Center. An urban biologist says the owl is unstable and may have been raised domestically, then set free.

Beware La Lechuza! Especially when it is "unstable". And don't forget to follow the mayor's advice.
“If you walk late at night or early in the morning,” said Hollywood Park Mayor Richard McIlveen, “wear your hard hat.”

And duck a lot.
