Chomper the Great Horned Owl

 

Meet Chomper

Chomper is a human imprinted bird who was taken from the wild as a baby by a family who attempted to raise and keep him as a pet. He was fed inappropriate food and grew ill as a fledgling, at which point he was brought to Mountsberg where he has lived since 1989.
