Kayaker Saves Owl From Freezing to Death

While kayaking in Lake Tuusula in Finland recently, Pentti Taskinen spotted something jutting out of the water. As he came closer, he realized it was an owl. Worried that it would freeze to death in the cold water, Taskinen helped the owl up onto his kayak. The owl soon inched closer to Taskinen, cuddling up against him and eventually nestling partway under his life jacket. Taskinen paddled toward shore and once the owl dried off and warmed up, he flew off. The kindhearted kayaker managed to snap some gorgeous pictures of the adorable owl. Check them out!

    Back in 1985, I similarly rescued a young barn owl which somehow fell into the Potomac River from its nest which was in a large boat dock. The pattern of the barn owl’s feathers are very beautiful. But feathers built for silence do not do well if they get wet. After drying it off with towels and letting it air, we placed it back near its nest. I was only there for a while so I am not sure how it fared in the long run, but it looked healthy and hopefully it recovered fully.
