Writing Prompts: Golfu

Today, this meerkat is in Malta, and is being chased by a Golfu!

Malta has many mysterious, legendary creatures in its history, and they all might have made for an intriguing post, but I decided to go with the Golfu. The Golfu is an owl, but an owl with a difference. It is said that its screeching will petrify a person: think Medusa, but as an… owl?

It proved quite challenging to find out information about this particular mythical entity. There is a picture via Pinterest, which includes a description of how the Golfu petrifies its victims. The history of it all is hard to find. This may well be a post I try to revisit, as and when I can learn more. If any of you lovely readers know anything of the Golfu, please let me know!
