Sometimes animal rescue groups really need to think outside the box.
Take Animal Rahat in India.
The group stepped in to save an owlet when a tree fell and destroyed the baby’s nest back in July.
“Staff members placed the orphaned owlet in a different artificial nest that they’d built for another owl family who had lost two of their four babies when their own nest had been destroyed,” the group explained.
And the new siblings “snuggled” right up to the new member of the family.
“It was a leap of faith because it’s uncommon for birds to adopt babies who aren’t their own, but in this case, it worked perfectly!” the group explained.
And an even better update: The owlet has grown up healthy and strong.
The folks at PETA are now sharing the feel-good story.
“Because rescuers refused to give up, this baby owl is living the way every wild animal deserves to live: free in nature with a family who loves her,” the animal rights group wrote.
All because some animal lovers cared enough to give a hoot.
