Hornbill saved in Yangon


Yangon, hornbill, rescue

When I was little, I wanted to be a vet when I grew up. I was always fascinated by animals and one of the birds I especially loved was the hornbill. I think because it seemed some exotic and colourful.


Well, I didn't become a vet, but I still love animals, which is one of the reasons I am vegetarian.


I was excited to read that some people had taken the time to rescue a hornbill than was recently roaming the streets of Yangon.
