Fowl or Foul? A Study of Hippogriff Brutality was a book in the Hogwarts Library. Ron Weasley checked it out to find information to help the Hippogriff Buckbeak survive his trial in 1994.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • The book title is a play on words-- fowl/foul being a homophone, with "fowl" being a domesticated bird and "foul" an adjective describing something that is offensive or undesirable.
