Stray Poodle Snatched by Bird of Prey, Delivered to B.C. Nursing Home

Just so everyone has their fables straight: Storks deliver newborn babies to expectant mothers; eagles deliver stray poodles to old people in nursing homes. Either way, everyone wins.

The first part of the above rule is likely familiar. The next part, not so much.

Then again, it did happen in Canada.

KOMO News reports:

A poodle might actually owe its life to a bird of prey that scooped up the dog, then dropped it from high above, officials with the British Columbia chapter of the SPCA said Monday.

Spokesperson Shannon Broderick said the poodle was picked up on May 2 and then dropped from the sky on to the grounds of the Shorncliff Nursing Home in Sechelt. Nurses at the home tended to the six-year-old dog, then called the SPCA for help.

Congrats! It's a scruffy poodle!
The dog was apparently in pretty bad shape--long toenails, unkempt fur, bad teeth, poor manners. So the SPCA believes it was a stray and likely on its last legs.

Thus getting scooped up by a raptor and deposited in the care of nursing-home inhabitants appears to be a blessing, as the kindly old folk there have taken to nurturing the wretched creature back to health and caring for it like a child (not like their damn real children who put them in a nursing home in the first place).

The obvious catch in the dog's good fortune is that its current caretakers may not be long for this world, meaning it will have to be snatched up by another bird of prey and taken to a new nursing home soon.

Sort of the Mary Poppins of mangy stray dogs.
