    Default Snowy Owls .....

    Let this be a warning to anyone contemplating ringing one. This is what happened to one poor guy when he encountered one:

    " I hit one with my side mirrer took it to show the kids about that time its eyes open its taillins went into my hand then it .... all over my shirt like a buffalo I have never smelled anything so bad. "

    So where did you find that gem??!

    Clearly, Snowy Owls cause havoc to people's spelling accuracy . . . or at least to this person's

    Michael; I had to read the whole post, mate! Believe me; That spelling made it bloody hard work!

    That's just a snippet from a post on a forum dedicated to a certain branch of American pest control.

    " like a buffalo. " I'm in tears every time I read that bit! Fantastic bit of description!
