JOG­GER ‘SCALPED’ BY OWL

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

PARK bosses have warned vis­i­tors to be­ware of OWL at­tacks af­ter a jog­ger was al­most scalped.

Ron Jaecks, 58, was run­ning in Bush’s Pas­ture Park in Ore­gan when a great horned owl, with a 5ft wing­span, swooped down and sank its talons into his head.

The bi­ol­ogy pro­fes­sor later said: “It was like a huge elec­tric shock ran through my body, but also like I got hit in the head with a strike of light­ning.”
