Betty White Adopts an Owl for Bill Cosby’s 75th Birthday

Philly funnyman Bill Cosby (who didn’t win the 2012 Home Run Derby, in case you were wondering) turns 75 on Thursday. In honor of Cosby’s birthday, comedienne Betty White has adopted a Eurasian Eagle Owl at the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens.

“Bill and his Owl are a perfect match,” said White. “Not only are they both extremely wise, they’re both always such a hoot! And I know how much Bill loves his alma mater, Temple University. GO OWLS!!” [Reuters]
