BETHESDA, Md. (WUSA9) -- Montgomery County authorities released video Tuesday of an aggressive owl that reportedly attacked several joggers along a popular trail in Bethesda. 

In the video, which was taken Thursday, the owl can be seen briefly dive bombing across the Capital Crescent Trail.

Parks officials have posted signs along the trail about the owl, which has reportedly attacked at least three people.

Experts say the owl may mistake a ponytail for prey and that any attacks are most likely to happen at dusk or dawn.
