The story of Zeus the rescued owl reminds me of my childhood when a pigeon got hit by the car and we took it home, healed the wounds and after the pigeon recovered we set him free. After that summer, every year this pigeon came back and hit our window telling us that he remembers we’ve saved his life. Zeus, of course, doesn’t hit anybody’s window but his story is just as touching. Someone found the injured owl on their porch in Southern California and took him to the vet. Zeus was not just an ordinary Western screech owl, he was blind carrying a whole universe in his eyes.
And these eyes are the reason he is named Zeus after the Greek god of thunder and sky. After being taken to the vet and given proper care Zeus could stand on his feet again. Since the awl was blind his saviors decided not to set him free into the wilderness but continue taking care of him in a trunk on the filing cabinet next to Wildlife Learning Center founder Paul Hahn’s desk.
Zeus has become a real sensation on the internet and has stolen many hearts with his big and gorgeous eyes that literally hold shining stars in them.
