Special proposal at the centre

Harry Potter fan gets engagement ring delivered by Owl!

Thoughtful Pete Tingle gave his girlfriend a proposal with a difference...

Pete contacted the Tropical Butterfly House, Wildlife & Falconry Centre to plan a special proposal for his girlfriend who is an avid Harry Potter fan.

The wildlife centre’s Bird Team spent time prior to the day practising flying Isaac, the Great Grey Owl, with a little pouch containing a ring so that he could fly to Pete for him to propose to girlfriend Laura. Pete, who lives in Sheffield, also came in to the centre to practice.

All the hard work paid off, at the end of the centre’s daily Animal & Bird Show on Monday 25th January 2016, Isaac flew to Pete and he proposed to Laura with a beautiful ring... and she said YES!

Laura said that she had no idea she was going to be proposed to, and is over the moon!

Congratulations to Pete and Laura from everyone at the Tropical Butterfly House, Wildlife & Falconry Centre.

Isaac has since been introduced to a female Great Grey Owl named Betty, and the wildlife centre is hoping that love will blossom between them.
