I'm always bragging about my kids, well this time I'm bragging about my wonderful husband.
My hubby, Jim, is your A-typical macho man. However, no matter how big and bad he trys to be, when it comes to animals, he's a big softy. Yesterday, on his way home from work, the woman in front of him hit a large bird with her car and just kept on driving. My hubby stopped his truck and got out to see if the bird was ok or not. To his surprize, the bird was an adolescent eagle.
So, Jim and one of his co-workers, who was driving behind him, found a large crate and brought the bird home. We tried calling every animal agency we could think of but couldn't find anyone to help with the bird. We tried calling the Game Warden, but he was out of town until Tuesday. We tried calling someone at the local zoo, but all we could get was a recording of their regular hours. We even called the State Patrol, but they couldn't do anything to help either.
So, not wanting to just leave the poor thing to the wilds, Jim called his mom, who's just as big an animal lover. She called her vet and within half an hour, my hubby was on his way to take the bird to the vet.
I'm very proud of my husband. He can watch movies where people are blown to bits and not think twice about it, but let someone injure a helpless animal, and he's ready to rumble. He didn't have to stop for the bird, but I'm very glad he did. The vet is going to help the animal heal and it will be set free.
Now if you will excuse me, I have to go sew a cape for my super-honey.
