Now That's Devotion
In this heartwarming news article we introduce you to John Miller, 70, a pensioner who is so devoted to his barn owls Jessie, Jenny and Jason that he even takes them to the supermarket with him on his mobility scooter. Mr Miller, who suffers from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) which affects his lungs and leaves him short of breath, said: "I love them, that's why I take them everywhere.
"I leave them at the front of Morrisons. There's people there that know me and they watch the owls for me.” The avian enthusiast was left devastated after thieves cruelly stole three of his owls earlier on this year. They broke into his giant aviary and took two barn owls and Jessie, a tawny owl.
But local children, who bought Jessie from the thief, returned her to her owner after they heard she was John's.
