Rubeus Hagrid owns at least half a score of these creatures. In 1991, they escaped from him and Madam Hooch charged Harry Potter with catching them as an extra broomstick practice.[1]

In 1992, and as part of his Quidditch training, Oliver Wood told Harry Potter to catch a Flitterby as quickly as he could.[3]
