This man was exploring and picking mushrooms in the Slovenian woods when suddenly, a fun trip in the wilderness transformed into an emergency.
As he was adventuring, he stumbled upon a beautiful owl who was lying by a tree. He thought it was strange that the owl was not afraid of him, but then he decided to go pet it.
“A week ago, when I was picking mushrooms in Slovenian woods, I saw large owl sitting on a dead tree. She wasn’t scared of me, so I come closer and I started to cuddle her. It was so cute,” he wrote.
The sweet owl loved being pet by this stranger. She was so into it. With every stroke on her head, her eyes opened and closed with a beautiful calmness. It was a very heartwarming moment.
But there was a problem.
It turns out there was something very wrong with the owl, which explained why she was lying by a fallen tree and not really moving at all herself.
Since the man could tell that something was wrong, he decided to show the owl some kindness and take her to the veterinarian.
And it is a very good thing that he decided to do that because it turned out that both of her wings were broken.
“Something was wrong with her. I picked her up and we went to the veterinarian, who saw that she has broken both wings,” he wrote.
He continued, “Yesterday they operate her, and by 4 months they will release her to the wild. The vet said that this owl is named slovenian ‘Kozač’ (Strix uralensis) and are only 600 couples [living] in Slovenia.”
Imagine lying in the woods with broken limbs waiting to die when all of a sudden, a big giant comes and saves your life! It is so amazing that he was able to find the owl in this very moment and instead of ignoring her, he did the right thing and brought her to a professional.
What’s sad is that from this, we learned that these types of owls are pretty rare and there aren’t too many left in Slovenia.
“Please do not kill owls, they are so cute and harmless,” the person added.
In this video, we see just how sweet and kind owls are. I mean, do you see her face?! It’s nothing but preciousness. How could you not want to save that?
At the time, the Youtube user was accepting donations that would go to a rescue center for wild animals in Slovenia, so it’s nice to see someone take action to help these animals in need.
The video is so sweet, it gained over seven million views since it was uploaded in 2012. Tons of viewers all over the world have fallen head over heels in love with the sweet owl and hopefully, she recovered and was released back into the woods after this video was taken.
Thank you to this man for doing his part and spreading kindness and awareness!
