People warned to stay off Whistler trail after owl attacks runner

Attacks by an ornery owl have prompted the municipality of Whistler to warn the public to steer clear of a local bike trail.

The B.C. Conservation Officer Service received a report on Monday about an aggressive bird that was swooping down on people along the Don’t Look Back biking trail located above the Function Junction neighbourhood.

At least one trail runner was left with minor injuries after being attacked by a barred owl.

The Resort Municipality of Whistler is asking people to avoid the trail over the next week and to use caution when accessing nearby trails.
