The Hazards of Cross Country Skiing in Maine

The Bangor Daily News had an article written by John Holyoke titled "Owls Attack: Warnings posted at Bangor city forest." See http://www.bangordailynews.com/detail/101028.html.   The lede: "For some cross-country skiing enthusiasts, there's nothing like heading into the woods on a crisp moonlit night.
Beautiful trails.  Pristine snow. Peace. Quiet. Idyllic.
Idyllic, perhaps, until a great horned own swoops down out of a tree, talons outstretched, and smacks you on the head.
