Owl hugs, snuggles with rescuer who saved her life

VANCLEAVE, MS (WCMH) — When Gigi the owl was saved by a Mississippi animal rescue group, she wasn’t timid about showing her appreciation.

In pictures that have gone viral, Gigi, a great horned owl, can be seen “hugging” one of her rescuers, Doug Pojeky.

Gigi was brought to the Wild at Heart Rescue in critical condition in May, after suffering from a condition similar to pneumonia in humans, and a concussion.

Gigi is doing better these days and shows her appreciation with her fondness to Pojeky, who is the president of Wild at Heart Rescue.
