Many creatures found in nature are highly aggressive, and will attack humans on site. Others are timid and will flee at the first hint of danger.
So what about owls? Are owls aggressive?
Well, it really depends on the circumstances.
When nesting, or caring for their young, owls can be very aggressive. Some owls have been known to attack humans, although it is not a common occurrence.
When alarmed, most owls will stand straight up and try to make themselves appear larger than they normally would. If you see an owl doing this, it’s probably best to back away and leave it alone.
