Do any cultures eat owl?

Jeremy Osner | Aug 9, 200601:21 AM     116

While doing some research recently I ran across this bit of folklore: if a woman feeds her husband roasted owl, he will become completely subservient to her every wish. Words to this effect appear on hundreds of folk wisdom web sites although none has any information about the source. So my question is, who eats owl? I've never heard of it -- do people hunt owl for meat? Also, have any of you heard that folklore indepently of my bringing it up just now?
