Owls culprits in cat deaths (Another good reason for cats indoors)

This is an old story, but still applies.
Four thriving in overgrown Covington lot
Four owls nested this spring in a vacant and overgrown lot behind Kirk Fightmaster's east Covington home, and it wasn't long before some cats turned up missing.
"Some kids from the neighborhood found pieces of them," said Fightmaster, who lives on the 1800 block of Maryland Avenue.
At first, neighbors blamed coyotes, and some wondered if the cats had been killed as part of a ritual sacrifice, but Fightmaster discovered the culprits as he watched the owls hunting.
"I haven't seen any rabbits in a while," Fightmaster said. "I usually have them in my garden, but I haven't had any problem with them (lately)."
