Owl Can’t Stop Hugging the Man Who Saved Her after Car Accident

Animals can have strong bond with humans and this does not apply only to the domestic animals but also to the ones in the wild. In this article we shall tell you a story about GiGi and Douglas Pojeky.

GiGi is an owl and stands for the Great Horned owl that was brought to Mississippi’s Wild at Heart Rescue in order to receive treatment for her head trauma. Missy Dubuisson, the founder, and director of the Rescue, said that the owl was one of the most critical ones ever brought to them, they could not believe that it survived for such a long time.

In the beginning, the specialists considered her injury as a result of car accident contributing to massive concussion. But, after thorough examination she was diagnosed with aspergillosis, similar to pneumonia in humans, and on top of that she was riddled with parasites.

GiGi needed badly an intensive care and it was provided by Douglas Pojeky, the president of Wild at Heart Rescue in Vancleave, Mississippi. His coworkers call him “birds of prey whisperer” due to his remarkable ability to connect with the birds.

Douglas Pojeky took good care of GiGi, but during the healing process he had to go away for a family event lasting for a few days. You may think that GiGi forgot all about her rescuer, well, you are so wrong; she did something that is beyond comprehension. When Douglas came to work she rushed to greet him, rested her head right on his shoulder, and wrapped her wings around him, amazing, isn’t it?

Missy Dubuisson witnessed the event and just confirmed her previous knowledge of Doug’s incredible ability to connect with birds. However, GiGi outdid all of them expressing such affection and gratitude to Doug. Even Doug himself admitted that GiGi is incredible and that he had never experienced such feeling like when GiGi nuzzled her neck against his. He can easily establish a connection with any bird but with this owl it is beyond special.
