You wouldn’t think that a snowy owl could fight off a pack of wolves, but then again you’re not a snowy owl.
Owls not only have amazing speed and agility, but a survival instinct to be reckoned with and when it comes to protecting their young they can be the fiercest of rivals.
Watch the fur and feathers fly when intruding wolves infringe upon the territory of owls with a nestful of chicks.
There’s no doubt that command of the skies can be one of the best defenses against marauding enemies. Even the smaller owl can ward off a full grown wolf by dive-bombing it from above.
The owl even showed the ability to fight off a scavenging arctic skua with the amazing capacity to leap at it from the ground; those talons were near to latching on to that bird.
The bottom line is never mess with any mother that has children to protect!
