Bulgarians Are Letting Storks Inside Their Homes To Save Them From Freezing April 2, 2018
The weather in Bulgaria has been so cold that storks, which migrate in winter, have been freezing to death. So the Bulgarian people decided to help them out
"I found five frozen storks near the village road the day before yesterday," 53-year-old Safet Halil told the AFP "I took them home, lit a stove to warm them and fed them fish." Halil says he plans on keeping his five companions inside for several more days.
Halil's act of kindness sparked a wave of support on social media and now others in the region are following his example. The AFP reported over 40 distressed birds have been sheltered inside people's homes, garages or barns
"It is minus three degrees Celsius (27 Fahrenheit) today and the weather is getting worse," Halil said, adding that the birds seem to be happy inside. "I already received two or three beak pinches on the arms."
It's not clear how long the storks will have to hunker down, as temperatures in Bulgaria continue to drop. People don't seem to mind the company though, but hopefully spring will come soon for the birds sake.
