Ewww what is that?

6D were handed some strange furry objects in their science session, with the question “What are these and who makes them?” They were relieved to discover that they were not poo but in fact owl pellets. They discovered that owls swallow their prey whole and then cough back up in a pellet the bits they can’t digest like fur and bones.

My investigating the contents of the pellets and identifying the bones we were able to deduce that our owls were fed a diet of chicks and mice.
