Meet Zeus: The rescued blind owl with a universe of stars in his eyes

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.
