“It had apparently fallen in by accident, but luckily a man in a kayak happened by and picked it up!”

“The poor bird tried to make its way inside the man’s life jacket for some warmth. It was then taken to shore at a nearby museum, and a museum guide took it home to dry overnight. The next morning all was well and the owl was released back into the wild!”
