Injured Owl Sees The Man Who Saved Her, Can't Stop Hugging Him

GiGi, a great horned owl, was brought to Wild at Heart Rescue, Mississippi after she had suffered a massive head trauma, possibly due to a car accident. The poor bird would have probably died, if not for the care of Douglas "Doug" Pojeky, the rescue's president, also known as the "birds of prey whisperer." The man formed such a bond with the owl, that, after he came back from a family trip, the owl was so overwhelmed with joy, she started dancing, and even gave Pojeky a hug.

The owl had suffered a major head trauma, but Pojeky brought her back to life

Not only the poor bird had a massive concussion from a car accident, she also had parasites, and suffered from aspergillosis, a condition that is similar to pneumonia in humans, but Pojeky refused to give up on her.

"This bird was one of the most critical we have ever taken care of" 

Missy Dubuisson, founder and director of the rescue, told The Dodo that "the fact that this bird has lived is beyond comprehension."
