It may seem terrifying when an eagle-owl flies straight at your head, but this lil’ Dutch guy just wants to cuddle, says YouTube.

The large owl has been cuddling the residents of Noordeinde, Netherlands, for a while, but was finally caught on tape. According to the YouTube video, the owl is “totally not aggressive”as it landed on a person’s head, and then stomped a little bit. Cuddle city.
