Meet Axl And Slash — Not The Rockstars, The Baby Owls Rescued From Guns N’ Roses Concert.

Two baby owls were found under the steps at a Guns N' Roses concert.

A rescue team recently found a couple of unexpected guests at a Guns N’ Roses concert. While the band was headlining at the Pyramid Stage in Glastonbury, two baby owls were discovered under the steps in two consecutive days. Named after band members Axl (aka Axl Rose) and Slash, the owlets were released into the care of Secret World Wildlife Rescue (SWWR). Staffers suspect that the two birds are siblings, according to Manchester Evening News.

“It looks like the parents sadly abandoned their nest once festival preparation began, so it’s difficult to say how long the chicks were left alone,” said SWWR fundraising manager David Plant. “We’re so grateful to the people who found and helped them; they must have been terrified after enduring almost two full days of loud music.”

SWWR posted an update about the baby owls on Facebook.

“Both Axl and Slash are now in an outside aviary at Secret World and although a little camera shy are both doing well, no signs of them exhibiting their musical talent yet though!” they wrote.
