London, July 5 : Birds used in the fourth Harry Potter movie have been seized by the RSPCA on the grounds that they had been kept in a "filthy" state.
The birds, which had been in the movie, were owls and hawks supplied from a falconry centre.
At least nine eagle owls from the farm were used in 'Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire' back in 2005.
The birds were discovered in Wakefield, West Yorks, by wildlife project boss Dave Sharples, who was shocked at the condition of the birds.
"We were appalled," The Sun quoted Sharples as saying.
