Tired swimmer rescued in Finland
During the first weekend of November, a Finnish man was kayaking on a lake in a thick fog. He saw something floating in the water, and when he got closer he saw that it was a Northern Hawk-Owl. It was clearly exhausted and the man lifted it out of the freezing water onto the tip of his kayak. The owl then crawled to his lap for warmth and burrowed under his lifejacket.
Since his original destination was too far away, the man decided to head for a nearby art museum on the lake shore. Once there he was eagerly assisted by both visitors and a museum guide, who took the bird in to rest and dry up next to a warm stove. At the end of the day the owl had recovered and was released back into the wild.
How the owl ended up in the lake in the first place remains a mystery. It may have got lost in the fog, or have been driven out to the lake by Hooded Crows (if a flock spots a predatory bird they tend to chase it away quite aggressively).
(This is my summarized translation of the article which is only available in Finnish. No copyright infringement is intended, only sharing this to celebrate the brave little owl and all the people who helped him.)

no wonder they never do anything to stop them transforming. They probably just stand there like:
Oh my god.

Hi, I have seen a lot of these things on tumblr before and I wanted to do one because my situation has seriously gotten out of hand. This little cutie standing next to me is my 7-year-old sister. She’s in second grade and is being bullied because our dad died a year and a half ago. Every other day she comes home off the bus crying because some asshole little kid wants to grind some salt into that wound. Today she told me people were kicking her on the bus and when she turned to her friend and asked for what she should do, the little bitch said ‘ask your dad’.
The school won’t do anything about it, the bus drivers won’t do anything about it either. My mother is losing her mind because the school district is just letting this go under the radar. This is very hurtful to my baby sister and I want her to feel like there are people who care about her.
I just want people to like or reblog this so she can see in numbers how many people think that this is bull shit and it needs to be stopped.
Baked some iPhone cookies to trick cops into pulling me over, then I just take a bite and ask if cookies are against the law.
