The front page of the Gwent Gazette amazed me this week. Blaenau Gwent council and the RSPCA raided The Owl Sanctuary at Ebbw Vale Festival Park and removed all of the birds. The Council said that they were responding to a complaint. This is the same Council that gave Malcolm Jones, the owner, an environmental award for his work only a couple of weeks ago.
There’s more about the story in the Gwent Gazette and the South Wales Andrex.
I hope that everyone comes to their senses very soon and that Malcolm gets his owls back very soon.
