Zeus The Blind Owl

Meet Zeus, a blind Western Screech Owl with eyes that look like a celestial scene.

Zeus the blind owl

Zeus was given a home at Wildlife Learning Center in the summer of 2012.  Prior to living at WLC, Zeus was treated at a wildlife rehabilitation facility after he was found emaciated and blind on someone’s front porch in Central California.  Veterinarians nursed him back to health, but deemed him “non-releasable” due to his loss of vision, preventing him from hunting and surviving on his own in the wild.  It’s believed that he only has about 10% of his vision.
