This owl was “gifted” to the Woodson by John “Grungy” Gladu. He found this rather unusual replica at a big name home improvement store in the garden section a few years ago. My guess is that the manufacturer used a tiger mold, and then attempted to create an owl by adding wings.
While it might have cost more money, the manufacturer should have created a brand new mold. It might have also been good if the pupils were straight.
