An Owl Recognizes Man Who Saved Her And Hugs Him With Gratitude.

Ever heard of the name GiGi? Sounds like a pretty girl's name, right? That's a great horned owl, critically wounded and at the point of death when she was brought to Wild at Heart Rescue, Mississippi. rescue-owl-hugs-man-gigi-douglas-pojeky-3 Poor, Gigi. She had suffered severe head trauma, possibly after being hit by a car. “This bird was one of the most critical we have ever taken care of,” Missy Dubuisson, the rescue’s founder, said. “The fact that this bird has lived is beyond comprehension.”  rescue-owl-hugs-man-gigi-douglas-pojeky-2

However, after an extensive treatment, GiGi successfully beat all odds to become better. There’s only one person to thanks for her survival and that is Douglas “Doug” Pojeky who looked after the special bird. He’s known as the “birds of prey whisperer.”

“In all my years of working with birds of prey, I have never seen someone with such a bond with these magnificent birds,” Dubuisson explained. GiGi trusted Pojeky completely.

When he was gone for some time to visit his family in Michigan, upon his return GiGi couldn’t hold her excitement. Not only did she start dancing, she rested her head on his shoulder and hugged him.


“It literally brings tears to my eyes to watch him interact with these birds,” Dubuisson added. “They absolutely know him and trust him. It’s the trust that you see in her face.”
