Screech Owl

It took many special people to help rescue this Screech Owl. First the rescuers that found the owl and cut him out of a barbed wire fence, then they called a police officer who contacted our center. Next, Dr. Laura Nelson drove-on her day off from Christiansburg to Bland and back to retrieve the owl. Haley then met Laura on I 81 to do the final leg of the journey to our center where it received the necessary vet care from Dr. Diane. The owl has severe bruising and feather loss on one wing; prognosis is guarded.
