Is Juneau in the Alaskan Triangle? Anything mysterious to report?

I've had a 'ma eagle swoop down on me when I was trying to peer over a cliff to see her nest, which was just somehow, on a little ridge on the cliff beneath us. (I didn't want to upset her, so I gave up the photo-op) But the biggest most scary bird I've ever seen was an owl. Oh man! It's wing span went across my windshield.
HUGE. And gorgeous.

A friend and I saw an owl sitting in a tree that must have been near 3 foot tall.
It never spread it's wings, but it must have had a huge span.
As far as I've researched they aren't known to get that big, but apparently they do.
This was at Brazos Bend State Park in southern Texas.
That thing could have easily snatched a small/medium sized dog.
My australian shepherd was attacked by a very large owl... My aussie was maybe 40-50 pounds and the thing picked her up... it struggled to fly with her as it dropped her about 5 feet but it was huge... never seen one that big before
