Believing an Owl is a Witch Superstitious Mexican Villagers Set It On Fire - The Owl Amazingly Survived


This shocking video uploaded onto social media in Mexico shows how superstitious villagers caught an owl and set it on fire believing it to be a witch.

And when the owl amazingly survived being burned alive, it is then interrogated by women who demanded to know what it's human name is, and that it turns itself back into a woman if it wants to be freed.

The images show that despite its feathers being burnt and the ground around the cage it is imprisoned in is scorched, the terrified owl is still alive and screeching at its captors.

But they take this as proof that the bird is really a witch, and its shrieks as the sound that it does not like the fact that its true identity has been discovered.

The incident happened at in the town of Durango, in the north-central Mexican state of the same name, a rural area which like many places in the country includes the superstition that some women are witches that have the power to turn into animals.

During the inquisition of the burnt owl, the women repeatedly ask the owl to identify itself and one stage they are heard reading sections of the Bible in the belief that this will force the owl to turn back to a woman. They also recount stories of how the owl had been seen looking through the window at the home of one, and how another claimed that the owl had tried to curse her.

The women apparently decided to upload the video to show how they had captured the witch but it was widely condemned by online commentators who urged authorities to track them down and punish them as a warning to other superstitious people to avoid such foolish beliefs.

One user wrote: "This is just an animal inside a cage and anything would scream if it was threatened by these women in this way." Another added: "This is just superstitious nonsense and I really wish that authorities could finally do something treat these people like the criminals they are."

The horrific scene was captured on video and later uploaded to social media by the villagers.

Footage shows the burnt owl screeching at its captors as it flaps around inside the cage - just seconds after being set alight by the women.
