Is this the Irish version of Jaws?

The owner of a missing eagle owl in Kildare says it could pose a threat to children.

The female European Eagle Owl – known as Owlington – has been missing from her Curragh Grange home since Friday.

There have been several sightings of the orange-eyed bird in North Kildare today.


An Eurasian Eagle-Own is known to attack and eat almost anything that moves, from bugs as small as beetles to deers.

Owner Darren Jackson is urging anyone who sees her to stay away and report the sighting to Gardai.
