No owls injured in Alexandra

Wikimedia Commons/AllisonMillerOwls were released into Alexandra in October in an attempt to stave off the rat infestation. Many questioned the decision, as the cultural notion that owls are unlucky is well-known. However, after the owls were released, there were reports that the owls were being killed by the inhabitants of the township. But the reports were discredited as rumour mongering in an effort to put a darkness over the project. I report on the truth in this piece originally on NoW!
