London , July 5 (ANI): 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. (ANI)
