Reports www.telegraph.co.uk.

A pensioner has been banned from taking his pet owls for a walk due to health and safety concerns... 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. 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.

Perhaps the recession will bring some sanity to Health and Safety by elimating these 'jobs worths' who have nothing better to do!
