Preparing for a storm can be scary and overwhelming at times. How do you brace yourself for a natural disaster? Where do you go and what do you buy in order to survive the unknown? As many humans fear this process, we are not alone in our panic to equip ourselves for something we have no idea what the final outcome will be. Animals can also sense when a storm is heading their way. They too find themselves in survival mode or a state of panic which may cause some animals to seek shelter in the most peculiar of places.
This story is a prime example of one animal who went into a state of panic. Sensing something devastating was heading his way, this hawk sought refuge in a car of a complete stranger. Walking up to the car, the man was in shock of his surprise visitor. Recognizing the fear in the hawk’s eyes, the man carefully removes the animal from his car in hopes that he will fly away and continue on with his journey. The hawk, on the other hand, has no desire to leave the new safety he has found.
With the hurricane approaching closer and closer, the man makes an executive decision to take his new found friend with him while his whole family seeks shelter from the storm. Through it all, they make sure all the hawks needs are met. With a full belly and happy heart, the hawk is safe, happy and content in his temporary home. As the storm parts and the clouds disappear, everyone is safe and they’ve survived the storm together and under one roof. This family’s kind heart towards this desperate animal gave the hawk another fighting chance to live another day basking in the sunshine instead of fearing the unknown. Enjoy this video and the beautiful story that will unravel right before your eyes.
