What could possibly go wrong?

March 13, 2015

Well, I thought I’d heard it all but I was obviously mistaken.

Are you ready for this? Here’s the bizarre amazing news:  you can go to an owl-petting bar in London.

That’s right, folks.  An owl-petting bar.  You can reach your delicate digits toward those sharp-taloned, razor-beaked nocturnal birds who eat rodents in one big gulp.

In the article we are reassured that the owls are trained professionals.

Trained professionals.

I just can’t even get my head around trained professional owls.

Just in case, there will be professional falconers on site “should anything go awry.”

In other words, should one of those owls mistake your wiggling fingers for a nice juicy mouse, there will be a professional falconer on hand to help you retract your bloody stump.  Feel comforted?

Here is where you can read the article for yourself:  Play With Owls in London at the City’s Newest Bar!.

And here is a nice little video of owls eating mice to show tunes:
