I was also knew an individual who was attacked by an owl, many years ago, in Bend Oregon, species unknown. He developed a very serious disease that left him wheel chair bound and unable to speak for life. He was one of the founders of the High Desert Museum in Bend. This is a very rare occurrence but your neighbor should get it checked out.

Rob,I was struck by a Barred owl several years ago.Four small puncture wounds in my scalp. Uncharacteristically, the owl flew toward my face instead from behind me. Was like being struck on the head, hard, with a large stick. Because it drew blood, I called my MD. He said it was important that I had a recent Tetanus shot. Let her know.

A neighbor just came over traumatized from her evening walk having been hit on the scalp by a large owl which I assume is a barred owl since they are common around here now. It was a good 6 inch scratch with a couple of punctures as well. I understand they are territorial around nests but why would an owl attack now?
