An owl is terrorizing a Paducah, Kentucky neighborhood and residents don't know what to do about it.
One doctor caught it on camera while riding his bike.
It wasn't the first time Dr. Mark Vance was attacked by the big bird.
In fact, Monday's assault was the fourth.
Vance says it always happens in the same area as he rides his bike just before sunrise, along Whitney Drive in the Pines subdivision.
On Monday he set out with his cell phone and caught it all on camera, without crashing his bike, or getting injured.
Others who live here haven't been so lucky.
"It means to attack, it doesn't think I'm prey, it thinks I'm in it's territory," Vance said.
It's territory happens to be Vance's neighborhood.
"I saw it hopping on the side of the road and I thought it may be warning me at that time so I was kind of expecting today but it's still a shock," Vance said.
Biologist Karen Hlinka is also surprised.
"Owls are usually very private animals, they are nocturnal they're out at night when people aren't around so it's very unusual," Hlinka said.
Vance said a neighbor was hit in the head by the owl and even cut by it's talons.
"They say its just territorial," Vance said.
And terrifying to people trying to mind their own business.
A federal law, the "Migratory Bird Treaty Act", makes it illegal to capture or kill a long list of birds unless you have a special permit.
