      Hi animalover, I am so happy to hear that I am your favourite animal! Why do you think it will be hurt if you vote for it? The collection of DNA for sequencing will not hurt the animal, it could be done for instance from already existing samples, or from a simple blood draw which would be done when the animal is asleep at the vet’s. So please do not worry at all, and vote for me :).. Yours truly, Barn Owl..
