Aboard a kayak on Finlands Lake Tuusula, Pentti Taskinen saw something splashing in the water. When he paddled closer, he realized it was an owl about to suffer a slow, hypothermic death. So he saved it.
After the owl climbed aboard, it cuddled up to Taskinen and nestled itself partially under his life vest while he paddled back to shore. (Awww.) Once the bird — believed to be a northern hawk owl — dried off and regained its strength, it was able to fly away on its own.
Cutest little owl
