Default Guy helps owl

Hard to believe that the owl stayed so calm during the entire time

I had to reel in and remove hook from a pelican once. He came out of nowhere and got a top water plug.

same here, you know what, I really believe that many animals know when they are in life or death trouble, and must figure what do I have to lose, and let humans intervene.

Awesome. My daughter works with injured owls for a living and does rehab with them, she tells me those big owls are very very smart. He knew the guy was saving his life. Very cool stuff.

I wish the seagull who hooked himself on my line last year was as clam. I reeled him in to de-hook him and I was repeatably beat in the face with lefts and rights. If they were fists, instead of wings, I'd have been KO'd. If that seagull knew I was saving his life he sure had a funny way of saying thanks.

Staring down the beak of that owl must have been nerve racking...not so much with a seagull.

I've had similar experience with seagulls.

There was one time that I thought I was in for it with an Osprey. Thank god he broke free before I had to deal with him.

I had that happen with a seagull. He calmed down after I wrapped my hand firmly around his neck. Then I got him free from the line.
