Pet owners: Beware of eagles

The biology staff of the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge is cautioning all owners of small dogs and cats in the Soldotna and Sterling area to closely watch free-roaming pets. A recent report from the Sterling area indicated a small free-roaming dog was killed by several bald eagles. If eagles are commonly observed near areas used by small pets, owners should supervise the pets when outside.

If eagles are perching nearby and watching pets as potential prey, owners should keep the pets inside for a few days until the eagles leave. Bald eagles and other large birds of prey such as the great-horned owls in the area may be getting more desperate to find suitable prey because the snowshoe hare population has declined on the Kenai Peninsula in recent years.
