Owl Removal - How to Catch an Owl

This customer had an owl stuck in his screened-in pool enclosure. It had flown in though a small opening, and was unable to find its way out. When I arrived, it was perched on this steel beam, sleeping.

I sneaked up on the sleeping owl. It opened one eye and looked at me, but then it fell back into a deep sleep. I approached it with my special all-canvas bird net, and it opened both eyes and looked to the left. I held the net to the right, and just as it swiveled its head around to see, I lurched forth with a swift and mighty sweep of the net and bagged the angry owl. It fell back asleep in the net, and I brought it outside for this photo. It walked out and looked around and flew off into a pine tree. People always believe that owls are wise, but nearly half of zoologists who have researched the matter disagree.

If you have a general problem with an owl, and need to get rid of it, I'm afraid that there's really nothing you can do. Owls, like most birds, are protected by the federal migratory bird protection act. As with any nuisance bird, you can eliminate roosting areas, but you can't hurt the bird itself.
