Wise Rich old fat owl hunt in north India

There’s more here
n-sawwhet-owl-irene_timossi.jpg A bizarre rumour in Jammu and Kashmir that an owl weighing over three kilograms can turn its owner into a millionaire has spread like wild fire in the rest of northern India. The Srinagar office of IANS is receiving scores of telephone calls daily from northern India, with callers desperate to know the contact numbers of the mysterious man who has offered a fortune for such owls.

And at least one Hindi newspaper that carried the original story says its phone lines are literally jammed.

‘Sir, I have an owl weighing 3.1 kilo. The bird is in good health and unharmed. Please tell me where is it to be delivered so that I can collect my reward,’ pleaded Naresh Kumar, who said he was calling from New Delhi.

Similar calls have come to the IANS office from Ludhiana and Jalandhar in Punjab, Hissar in Haryana, New Delhi and also Jammu, the winter capital of Jammu and Kashmir.
