A woman in Yamhill County is missing her pet falcon. No, really.

The bird of prey was last seen Tuesday afternoon near the Henry Hagg Lake area in Gaston, Ore.

In a post to the Astoria Police Department’s Facebook page, the department said the caller believes the bird – an Aplomado Falcon — is travelling North.

The runaway pet is reportedly not afraid of people, and if it is acting aggressively, it’s actually just begging for food.

It has burnt orange breast feathers and dark grey wing and tail feathers.  Anyone who sees the missing falcon is asked not to approach it, but to contact the Astoria Police at 503-325-4411.
