Recently, a college in South Carolina spotted an animal peeping at their students on campus. It wasn’t some creep. Although, at first glance, it does look a bit freaky. Rather, it was a baby animal in need of some help.
The feathered-visitor was an owlet that had fallen out of its nest and wandered over to a window of a building on Thornley Campus of Trident Technical College (TTC) in Charleston.
“The owlet had fallen out of a nest and ended up at the front door of Bldg. 920.” the school said in a Facebook post.
Trident Tech staff members Tom Craven and John Long came over and helped rescue the adorable baby owl.
“John called his wife who was able to drive the little hooter” to the Center for the Birds of Prey, a nearby wildlife rehabilitation facility.
Once the owlet recovered, it was returned to its family and the tree it had fallen out of. With a little help from Scott Henning, that is. Scott used a lift to take the owlet back up into the tree.
Shorty afterwards, the baby bird was spotted peering down from the branches. A far more natural sight than when it was staring through the front door.
