Has anyone heard a rumor about the snowy owl on Queen Anne being captured his morning? My co-worker saw a post on her Nextdoor app, she lives on Queen Anne, it intimated the capture was for to missing ferrets? Suffice it to say, the post was taken down before she could read it. She screen shot it the email, but it does show a photo of a snowy owl in a cage and I am hoping it is just an ill advised prank post.

My uninformed guess was "mostly Eastern Gray Squirrels," since they're abundant and probably likely to make the mistake of being caught in the middle of an aerial utility wire with nowhere to hide.
