GiGi, a great horned owl, was at death’s door when she was brought to Wild at Heart Rescue, Mississippi. The poor thing suffered a massive head trauma, possibly after being hit by a car. After an extensive treatment, GiGi got better. It probably wouldn’t have been possible if not for the care of Douglas “Doug” Pojeky. The owl was so grateful to her rescuer Pojeky that she couldn’t stop hugging him when the man came back from a trip.

“This bird was one of the most critical we have ever taken care of”
“In all my years of working with birds of prey, I have never seen someone with such a bond with these magnificent birds,” said the rescue’s founder
“They absolutely know him and trust him. It’s the trust that you see in her face”
