An Eagle Owl, capable of eating a fully-grown deer, has gone missing in Co Kildare.
The female European Eagle Owl, named Tank but nicknamed 'Owlington', escaped from its home in Curragh Grange while being fed on Friday.
The powerful bird was last seen in Caragh two days ago.
The creature has a 6.5-foot wing span.
Eagle Owls are considered to be the world's largest owl species.
They weigh about twice as much as the heaviest North American owl - the Snowy Owl - and weigh nine-times as much as the common Barn Owl.
Her owner, Darren Jackson says she is most likely still in the Kildare area.
"Realistically if he went up as far as Caragh - we live in Curragh Grange which is just beside the Curragh - Caragh is maybe a 10 or 15 minutes drive away.
"With the wind carrying her, that would have been a very short flight, it wouldn't have been much of a distance at all.
"So I think realistically Naas, Sallins - pretty anywhere in the Kildare area at the moment is likely".
