Dog owner Cecilia Celis is warning pet parents of the threat of hawks after her 2-pound Yorkie, Lulu, was snatched by a large bird outside their home in Nevada.
"We just hear them barking and crying," Celis tells ABC 13. "So we are like, 'Oh, they're just play fighting.' And a second later I just look outside. We see a huge bird...like the wing, like, fly up. So I run up and I yell at the bird, I'm like, 'Get off my dog! Get off!'"
Celis fought for her dogâ€™s life. The outlet reports that Celis grabbed a pillow, and according to the outlet, â€śThe bird finally let go after three hits.â€ť
The familyâ€™s surveillance camera caught the whole thing on tape.

Immediately after the incident, Celis brought Lulu to the veterinarian--who confirmed that Lulu was not injured.
â€śI thought she was going to die or something because thatâ€™s a big bird compared to her,â€ť Celis tells the outlet. â€śWe were lucky.â€ť
