When a family found an injured owl on their porch, they didn’t realize the effect he’d have when they brought him to a rescue center in Sylmar, California.
They ended up naming him “Zeus,” because his eyes seem to contain a universe of stars. Unfortunately, Zeus is blind so he won’t be released back into the wild, but he now has a new home at the center and has become quite the local celebrity.
This is Zeus, a blind starry-eyed owl who currently lives at the Wildlife Learning Center, Sylmar, California.
The little guy was found lying on a front porch near the Wildlife Center. He flew into the wall of a house and hit his head.
The poor fella was scared, but otherwise undamaged. They discovered that the cause of his accident was his blindness.
They couldn’t simply release him into the dangerous wild so they kept him in the Center.
Since he had mesmerizing starry eyes, they named him Zeus, the God of the Sky.
Now Zeus is a full-time resident of Wildlife Learning Center, bringing happiness to every visitor.
He even has a toy friend and loves Halloween!
Zeus is very friendly and loves to be near people, so if you’re ever in California, be sure to visit him and his friends in the Wildlife Learning Center. h/t: Bored Panda
