Kayaker Saves Owl [Pic]

Submitted by: Draculya 3 years ago Weird


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.

I would have saved it and just not taken pictures. The stupid Fish and Wildlife service can go F*** themselves. If they want to let an animal die, they can start with themselves.

Yes. Fish and Wildlife is pretty over the top here in the states. They would prefer that you call them, and the owl died while they were in route to save it, rather than you save it yourself. Quite ridiculous. You`d likely get charged with harassing wildlife, illegal possession of a wild animal, endangering wildlife, and I`m sure they could come up with a few other charges as well.

This is a clear case of drinking and flying.

Finland, huh? That makes sense. In the US, if a Fish and Game warden had caught him, he would have lost everything and likely been arrested.

An owl is as cute as a cat, and just as much the predator. They like getting scratched on the head too, just like kitties.
