SALEM, Ore. — The city of Salem is posting new warning signs near a park and jogging hill where at least four people have been attacked by an owl.
The yellow caution signs depict a running stick figure with a large bird overhead.
KGW reports the idea for the signs started as a joke on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show, but city officials like it.
Joggers have been hit on the head or scratched over the past couple of months by what’s believed to be a barred owl protection its territory or a nest near Bush’s Pasture Park and Soap Box Derby hill.
