The good and the bad

Jazz deadSubmitted: 21 Apr 2003

A giant owl called Jazz with a wingspan of 6ft went and 20 inches tall, went missing in Valentines Park. The owl, a European eagle owl is the largest species of owl in the world, and has been known to hunt foxes and small deer. The owl flew away after being attacked by crows. A couple of days later it was found dead, savaged by a fox. The owner thinks this happened as the bird was in captivity it preferred to hide in bushes rather than fly up a tree, and when it got dark, the fox got it.
