Attack leaves 12-week-old puppy with puncture wounds in skull from owl's talon

A puppy is making a “speedy recovery” after being picked up by an owl and dropped onto a nearby golf course, according to a rescue organisation.

Foothills Animal Rescue said puncture wounds from the owl’s talons were visible in the 12-week-old puppy’s skull after she was attacked and carried off over the weekend.

The puppy, called Latte, was snatched from the back garden of a foster family in Arizona, when her carer Bonnie Ziegler briefly let her go around the side of the house for a toilet break.

Latte was dropped on a nearby golf course, where she was found nearly 12 hours later injured and dehydrated, the rescue organisation said.

“I didn’t hear a sound and the other puppies didn’t bark. It was as if she just vanished,” Ms Ziegler said.

She added: “We immediately started searching and soon our neighbours joined in. We posted a notice on Nextdoor (a social networking app) in the hopes someone might find her.”

Ms Ziegler was alerted of Latte’s whereabouts when a golfer on the course posted a photo of the puppy on the Nextdoor app.

Foothills Animal Rescue said the puppy is now back with her foster family after a weekend at an emergency veterinary clinic.

She was described as being “in good spirits” and had no broken bones from the drop.

The puppy’s veterinary costs came to $4,500 (£3,416), however some of those costs will be covered by donations to the rescue shelter for Arizona Gives Day.
