What started like any typical Friday evening quickly escalated to something much more traumatic for Cecilia Celis and her puppy Lulu. "We were inside making tacos, and we hear crying. We just hear them barking and crying, so we are like 'oh they're just play fighting' and a second later, I just look outside. We see a huge bird fly up, and I yell at the bird, 'get off my dog! Get off my dog!" Celis explains. Surveillance video from Celis'home shows her rushing outside to her two-pound Yorkie who was in the talons of a large bird, possibly a hawk. Lulu survived the bird attack without sustaining serious injuries. Brave Girl!
