Brave Owl Defends Its Nest From Hungry Wolves... And Wins!

Don't mess with the snowy owl. Just don't.

Think an owl would have a hard time fighting off a pack of hungry wolves?

Think again.

As the BBC documentary "Super Powered Owls” shows, snowy owls use air superiority to throw their earth-bound foes off balance -- and as a result, a pack of wolves out to snack on a nest of baby owls is in for a surprise.

Check it out in the clip above, which also shows a snowy owl defending its young from an arctic skua, using its ability to take off vertically to its advantage.
