Here’s some video of a Hawk Owl attacking a video camera.  No info on what made the owl attack, what kind of lure was used.  The Hawk Owl is the largest owl in the Northern Hemisphere, found only in Europe and northern Asia.  It prefers forested areas with plenty of cliffs and rock faces for remote nest sites.  Here’s the video.

The London Zoo has an Eagle Owl and you can get pretty close. You can feel very vulnerable looking into those deep, cold yellow eyes.
