A crowd had formed around an owl on the golf course, which peeked Craig Loving’s curiosity. No one knew why it was there, but it hadn’t moved an inch for hours. Then, Loving tried to help the owl, but his actions put him in a tough spot. As he reached out across the opaque pond, his life was altered in the blink of an eye. No one could have foreseen what was about to happen, until it was too late to do anything about it.

Loving was a regular at the Lost Creek Country Club, but he wasn’t a golfer. He was a superintendent there, and he didn’t have a clue what was about to happen to him that morning. Over the years, Loving had dealt with all sorts of issues, but none were as weird as this one. Loving was well aware that any commotion on the golf course was a bad sign, but he never imagined what he would lay eyes upon next.

Loving grabbed one the groundskeepers and asked him what all the commotion was about, and that’s when the keeper told him about the owl perched in the pond. As Loving took a closer look, he saw a Great Horned Owl. But what was the big deal? The creature wasn’t endangered. It was actually a common bird across America. So why was everyone making such a fuss over it?

The groundskeeper told Loving that the owl had been perched for several hours, and no one really understood why it wouldn’t move or fly away. It was like the owl was frozen in time or a statue, and it refused to budge. It hadn’t eaten anything or even spread its wings. Curious, Loving asked the groundskeeper how long the owl had been in that position and the answer left him stunned.

Twelve Hours And Counting

The groundskeeper told Loving that the bird had been perched for twelve hours after some sort of commotion in the pond. Apparently, the owl had barely managed to make it to the stump in the water. When Loving heard the story, he got really mad. Why did the staff allow the creature to stay there for so long? Then, Loving made a personal decision.
