Owl makes The Home Depot its home
Employees at The Home Depot in Harrison, Ark., say a great horned owl apparently has chosen the store as its permanent hangout.
James Toon, an employee at the store's garden center, said the owl's mother laid its eggs in the garden center in January and employees could not disturb the nest due to the wildlife regulations for great horned owls, the Harrison (Ark.) Daily Times reported.
John Gallagher, outside garden center supervisor, said the bird has grown to have a wingspan of about 4 feet.
He's kind of our pet now, Gallagher said.
