WORLD Radio - Kicker: Who gives a hoot?

A family in England reports animal noises in their house but discovers a stuffed surprise under the couch

A family in England heard this sound inside their home, but they couldn't figure out where it was coming from. The muffled bird sounds seemed to be coming from inside a wall, so the homeowners called some local wildlife rescuers.

Volunteers were on their way when the family called again and said, never mind.


Turns out, all the hubbub was over a stuffed toy by the name of Hedwig. You know, the pet owl in Harry Potter? Hedwig got lodged under the sofa.

This is just so out of character, so I am reliably told, this is more of an Errol the owl thing. It would never happen to Hedwig.

It’s The World and Everything in It.
