If you live in the U.S. keeping a pet owl is illegal, they are protected by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. Being in possession of one, or even any of it's parts can get hold of you fined or jailed. Owls would also not make suitable pets..they would be hard to care for, and it would be cruel to maintain such a bird locked up in a cage. If you really like owls, why not see whether there is a local wildlife rehab in your area that take in owls, you might be able to volunteer there.
"pet owls" don't exist, you can't really turn an owl into a pet. You can imprint it, you can train it, but still, it won't be a pet.
It is illegal in Canada lacking a falconry permit.
Beside, these birds are not interesting to keep as they feed on meat and will stink after a while. Also, you stipulation to feed them whole preys and have them surrounded by a hudge flight in order to keep them full-bodied.
Pretty sure owls are illegal! I ponder..I dunno...prolly not a good idea tho! They are cute when their babies tho!
you can not enjoy an owl for a pet they are illeagle so save yourself the time and trouble dont even try it
