There is more to this image than you see, this is the start of a journey to create a working relationship to re-develop full trust.
This beautiful male Snowy Owl is at present going through a huge amount of careful re-training as part of a careful rehabilitation program. Why, purely because us humans owe it to him.
Reason for him being with us is because he was handed to us with 25 other birds after they were videod being abused. This was captured through the bedroom window by a caring & observant neighbour who witnessed the shocking behaviour of a keeper punching & kicking his birds. This video evidence even though sick, shows the Snowy Owls life prior to being seen in this image. The video I have mentioned was released to us & can be found on our latest news page, this is not to be viewed by any weak minded person!
The purpose of this shot is to enable us to show the outside how he is now getting on & how happy & contented he now looks. We still have more work to do with him, not just with him but also with the others that arrived with him.
His name by way is 'Tundra' Doesn't he look amazing!!!!!!!
Thanks for dropping by.
