Madonna-Hating Owls Return

The Owls have returned to the Ullevi Arena in Gothenburg, after having left with their feathers ruffled during the Madonna concert earlier this summer.

The owl couple had taken up residence in the arena enclosure in the beginning of the year, but after weathering speedway, monster trucks and even a concert with U2, they drew the line at Madonna. It is hoped that the owls now will stay in the arena enclosure for the breeding period, but is not known how they will feel about the ice hockey game between Swedish teams Frölunda and Färjestad planned for December.
