Somewhere on this ball we call "Earth"

"Russell Burt, 74, has spent the last ten years regularly 'walking' his seven pet birds around his home town.

He takes one of them out every day, going for a walk with the owl perched on his hand.

Mr Burt, a grandfather-of-one, of Plympton, Devon, says the owls enjoy the fresh air and he often draws a crowd of onlookers.

Known locally as 'The Owl Man', he has a licence to display birds and also collects money which he gives to a local wildlife charity.

But he has now been banned from taking his owls outside - after his local council ruled the daily walks are a health and safety risk.

Officials say he could no longer take the owls out on the grounds that they could be ''spooked'' by traffic and ''run amok'' and attack someone." (More)
