Lucky pup survives owl attack

U.S. & World

(KPNX) A 3-month-old puppy is lucky to be alive after an owl swooped in, picked her up, then flew for nearly a mile before leaving her on an Arizona golf course. 

The ordeal happened late last week around 3 a.m. along the Troon Golf Course in Scottsdale.

Four days after being attacked by an owl, you can still see the scars and cuts on Latte the dog.

Bonnie Ziegler, who is fostering Latte, let the dog out around 3 in the morning, but a few minutes later, Latte was nowhere to be found. 

“I went around the corner and there was absolutely no sign, no sound of anything,” said Ziegler.

She looked all around her yard and her husband grabbed his flashlight and searched the entire neighborhood. 

“I never really worried about coyotes too much down here because the wall is so high. So I wasn’t thinking coyotes, plus the house next door, but I forgot about the owls,” said Ziegler.
