Karen Gwillim of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, saw a cormorant near the town of Craven that was struggling with something. She was surprised to find the bird with a camera strap hanging on its neck! The camera was still attached, weighing the bird down.
When she approached the bird, which weighed about two kilograms, it didn't try to flee or resist. She took the camera off, it flapped its wings and it was gone.
"I think he was relieved to have something that heavy removed," she said. "He seemed all right."
With the bird saved, Gwillim turned her attention to the camera, a point-and-shoot model that had obviously been in the water for a while.
She went home, took out the memory card, let it dry out and booted up her computer.
Fortunately, the pictures were intact. There were about 200 of them, many of them having been taken in October, 2011.
That was two months ago. Gwillim posted the pictures on Facebook, hoping to find the owner of the camera. Nothing happened until she told her story on television, then a man stepped forward who says he knows who the owner is. The camera should be returned to its rightful owner today. Link -via Arbroath
