Russell Burt, aka the "Owl Man", had been walking his feathered friends around Plymouth on his shoulder for almost 10 years without any mishaps.
However, the lump heads in the council recently banned him from doing so, lest the owls "run amok".
Has anyone ever seen an owl "run amok"?
How often do I get to use the word "amok"?
I really must use it more often!
Anyhoo, there was a public outcry and Mr Burt received overwhelming support for his owl walking. The council were trashed in the media, and by local residents.
Can you guess what happened next children?
Yes, that's right, the council back tracked (because they are a bunch of spineless knobheads, who hadn't any real justification for banning the owl walking) and have now allowed Mr Burt to walk his owls (aside from near busy roads).
Plymouth City Council, well deserving Prats of The Week!
I believe they are a Tory council, yes?
By the way, how come owls can be banned but pit bulls can't?
