He is a Eurasian Owl - the biggest breed of owl, with a wing span of about two metres - and definitely not native to the area.
There were some debate between the local residents over whether he was just a playful friend, or a danger to children and pets.
I wouldn't want to play with him. - Chester Rat.
Me either. - Mr Woof, Doggsbody.
He was not afraid of people, and was happy to wander into people's lounge rooms, and to accept gifts of food from some of the local people.
It's not known how he came to be loose in Devon, and residents theorise he was released by a sanctuary or a private collector.
This is what happens when students don't keep Hogwarts up-to-date with their address. Delivery owls just get lost. - Mr Bumpy, Bloggercat.
