One morning, someone in Southern California found an injured owl on their porch. It turned out to be a western blind owl with eyes that look like a starry night. After a visit to the vet, the blind owl found a new permanent home at the Wildlife Learning Center in Sylmar, California. He was named “Zeus” after the Greek god of the sky and thunder because of his impressive large eyes.
Zeus was injured when he was found on that front porch in Southern California, but the dedicated animal-loving team at the center helped him get back on his feet. Since the cute owl was blind, they couldn’t just release it back into the wild, which is why it now lives on a log next to the desk of the founder of the Paul Hahn Wildlife Learning Center. Hahn.
“Zeus exudes a very peaceful presence and is very calm. He has a very big personality and exhibits a bit of a curious nature. ”
“A veterinary ophthalmologist examined him thoroughly, cured him, and deemed him irreparable because he only has about 10% of his vision and he couldn’t survive in the wild on his own.”
“It’s so camouflaged that most people don’t notice it until we point it out.” Many other people see it but think it is a stuffed animal because it is so calm and peaceful. When you wake up and open your eyes, people are shocked. We have had people almost cry when he reveals his beautiful eyes. ”
“It’s really special that Zeus’s disability is causing so many people to be aware and concerned about our environment everywhere. He really is an ambassador of his kind.”
