The famous jogger-attacking owl appears to have returned to the town. The Oregon Water Resources Department said two workers were attacked in separate incidents in different Salem locations last Tuesday. The first leaving marks on the man's head and the second knocking a hat off a worker's head. The attacks may have been the work of the same dive-bombing owl blamed for at least four attacks on joggers early in 2015. The attacks inspired the city to recommend hard hats while jogging in certain areas and posted warning signs in areas where the owl has struck. Have you ever been attacked by any flight animal?

The barred owl is also known as the hoot owl. Sales of "attack owl" street signs have raised more than $20,000 for local parks. Do you find this to be a positive outcome as the town is cashing in on this attack owl?
