The company that blow molded the plastic bird in this story should consider this a testimonial ad: London's Daily Mail reports that animal control officers spent 2 hours trying to rescue an owl that turned out to be a decoy. "Homeowners living near the telegraph pole in Rayleigh, Essex, were having a hoot yesterday as they described how the animal charity and Essex Fire Service wasted their time," the story reports. "The plastic bird of prey was supposed to act as a deterrent by scaring off the smaller birds." I wonder if the local pigeons were fooled as much as the animal control officers and firefighters.
