SIGHTINGS

Early information about the Fwooper was rare, and due to the nature of its song, very few people were willing to seek it out. One researcher was brave enough to try to find information, but as you can see below, it didn’t go too well.

Uric the Oddball attempted at one time to prove that Fwooper song was actually beneficial to the health and listened to it for three months on end without a break. Unfortunately the Wizards’ Council to which he reported his findings were unconvinced, as he had arrived at the meeting wearing nothing but a toupee that on closer inspection proved to be a dead badger.

ACCORDING TO NEWT SCAMANDER

Though at first enjoyable, Fwooper song will eventually drive the listener to insanity and the Fwooper is consequently sold with a Silencing Charm upon it, which will need monthly reinforcement. Fwooper owners require licences, as the creatures must be handled responsibly.
