From ancient times on, owls have been related to death, evil, and other superstitions. Numerous cultures saw owls as a sign of impending death. An owl was said to have predicted the death of Julius Caesar.
They’ve also been connected with witches and other so-called wicked beings. While this may sound like Halloween fun, numerous cultures still have superstitious notions about owls and in some places, owls are eliminated based upon these beliefs.
