Supermarket tries to cash in on owl terror

By

Owl

The owl terrorising the city of Pumerend still has not been caught. However, a local supermarket thought it would be a good idea to cash in on people’s fear by selling them an ‘anti-owl hat’ that’s basically a black university-style graduation cap with owl stickers. I guess that’s one way to look smart.

And like the seagulls in Haarlem earlier this week, the owl is also a protected bird type, so they can’t just shoot it. Apparently, a falconer is now on the case.

The owl has been a problem for a year and has only recently decided to step up its game. The city blames people for not telling them about all the attacks that have happened and suggests people walk around with an umbrella until they catch it.
