please help me overturn the council's decision to BAN Mr Russel Burt aged 74 of plympton taking his owls out in public with him and allowing the general public to enjoy seeing these birds up close and allowing Mr Burt the pleasure he has done for many years. Walking the streets of plympton with his lovely birds. Mr Burt has public liability insurance yet the council say he is breaking the law because the owls are a danger to the public & to traffic. Even thought the birds are sercured on leads. These birds are very highly cared for and loved by 99.9% of people who meet them. Mr Burt isn't even allowed to take the birds out to fly them anymore. Please help overturn there decision.

    I was with Russel at a wedding in October. The owls appeared contented and happy enjoying the attention. Political "correctness" gone crazy.

    If I was a child Id love to see a man casually walking down the street with an owl on his shoulder, if anything dogs are much more harmful so the idea of banning the owls is ridicilous

    Hi I saw the owls the other day sat down beside them and stroked them, no problem at all it was such a lovely experience as I love owls so very much I wish I had had my camera with me perhaps another time great sight
