Most commonly found at night in the deep forests of North America, these owls will often be found shying away from city buildings.

So it comes as no surprise that this great-horned owl seemed a little annoyed when he was found on the edges of a devastating fire.

It was seen hopping among the ashes in the middle of the day! It must’ve lost its home and was looking for somewhere to sleep.

Apparently, the owl was very docile, which is unusual for a great-horned owl in the wild.

It let the firefighters approach it and wrap it up safely in a jacket to avoid injury.

The mighty bird was then taken to the Camarillo Wildlife center, where it will recover and be released back into the wild when it’s safe to.

“He was found among the ashes, disoriented and suffering from smoke inhalation and a bad case of flat flies. Thanks to these courageous men, he will make a full recovery and be released back to his territory as soon as it’s safe to do so.”
