Wild Owl Loves Being Petted
Occurred on September 20, 2012 / Novo Mesto, Slovenia
Info from Licensor: "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 came closer and I started to cuddle her. It was so cute, but something was wrong with her. I picked her up and we went to the vet, who saw that she has broken both wings. Yesterday they operated her, and by 4 months, they will release her to the wild. The vet said that this owl is named in slovenian 'Kozač' (Strix uralensis) and are only 600 couples leaving in Slovenia. Please do not kill owls, they are so cute and harmless. Thanks"
