本集内容

Indonesia's owls at risk 印尼兴起饲养猫头鹰热潮

Toe wrestling champions 英国德比郡举行世界掰脚趾大赛

文字稿

Hadie paid 100 US dollars for this barred eagle-owl - the closest Indonesian owl that when young, looks like Harry Potter’s snowy-white Hedwig. In the past people stayed away from them, believing them close to the spirit world. But now there's a growing number of people - inspired by fiction - to take wild owls as pets. There is currently only one type of owl that’s on the protected species list in Indonesia. Activists want that changed to lift the Harry Potter curse.

豪迪(Hadie)花100美元买下了这只马来雕鸮,这类印尼猫头鹰的幼崽看起来与《哈利·波特》的那只浑身雪白的宠物 — 海德薇,最为相似。过去,人们曾试图远离这类动物,因为他们认为猫头鹰和神灵世界联系甚密。但如今,有越来越多人因受到虚构小说的影响,开始把野生猫头鹰当作宠物饲养。目前在印度尼西亚,只有一种猫头鹰被列入了受保护物种的名单中。提倡动物保护的人士想改变这一状况,从而解除《哈利·波特》热潮所施下的“魔咒”。 

New toe wrestling champions have been crowned after an unusual competition was held in Derbyshire in the UK. Participants at The World Toe Wrestling Championships, which is like arm wrestling but with feet, competed in best-of-three knockout rounds until a winner was found. Everyone had their feet checked by a podiatrist before they competed.

随着一场不同寻常的比赛在英国德比郡落下帷幕,新一届卫冕冠军们也随之诞生。世界掰脚趾大赛的规则与掰手腕相似,只不过是用“脚”比力气,参赛者们以三局两胜的淘汰制相互竞争,直到选出最终的赢家。每位选手的脚都需要事先经过一位足科医生的检查才能参加比赛。
