After you saw Kill Bill did you go out and buy a sword? No? Then why buy a dang owl!

Harry Potter fans (and their parents) are taking things just a little too far by going out and buying Snowy Owls to be more like their favorite protagonist. Owls, however, are tough to take care of and after pet-owners realize this, they very often abandon their new animal friend.

So many owls have been abandoned, in fact, that an animal sanctuary has opened on the Isle of Wight in the U.K.

Animal expert and founder of Newport Owl and Monkey Sanctuary says:

“They might look great in the Harry Potter films, but it takes years to train them. Children read the books and see the films and say to their mums and dads they want one and parents don’t realise how much care it takes to look after them.”

We agree!

So listen, it’s totally cool if you LOVE Harry, but maybe chill out on the whole buying owls thing.
