Animal rescue

Thursday, February 4th, 2010


A neighbour noticed there is a bird of prey trapped inside our hotel. There is no RSPCA in Slovenia so I had to call the Firemen (go figure!). So they came, the whole team, equipped head to toe in their fire fighting gear, using flash-lights, protective helmets and thick gloves they caught the bird. Never mind me yelling “use the blanket to cover it.. it will die from stress” seems I watched one too many nature documentary. After the bird was out we noticed the blood on its beak, all that hitting in the window from the inside must have caused it to hurt itself. For a few minutes the bird was still, in shock, but when the firemen turned off the headlights and left, she flew away in the night.
