This beautiful Barn Owl was hand-reared because some sad person shot her mom when she was a small chick. She is used to educate kids and adults alike the plight of cruelty to animals and birds. She was brought along to an event in Peel Park, Bradford, W Yorkshire, UK, and wasn’t phased by folk touching, stroking, and holding her by her Jesses (leather straps attached to her legs and talons).

    beautiful – and thank you for including her touching story. You just want to pet that feathered head.

  • Thank you so much for your kind comments, She was so tame that all the kids were surrounding her and she allowed us to stroke her – anywhere – she wasn’t bothered or phased out at all! Sorry for the delay, have been having senior moments! S:)
