Rumours of a missing eagle owl attacking children are untrue.
That's according to its owner who says his pet is not some sort of deranged animal looking to attack people.
Tank - who is more affectionately known as Owlington - has been missing from her Kildare home since Friday.
Her owner Darren Jackson says there have been several sightings reported today, " Most sightings at the moment seem to be in and around the Sallins area, up along the canal there. One person said that it attacked a child". "Apparently it was a robin red breast had landed on the pram, so it's, it's gotten a bit out of hand to be very honest with you".
