UPDATE: 01/17/2019. This owl is receiving pain medication in our treatment center. It has a broken left femur. Surgery was performed to insert a pin in the femur to stabilize it.

This morning, at 7:45, Dustin W. found a barred owl in Lahmeyer Rd. near Stellhorn Rd.  Two calls later he reached Soarin’ Hawk and was instructed to cover the owl and move him off the road.  Betty S. stopped to help and provided a box for cover.  I took the owl to ICU with a damaged eye and leg, and a bloody beak.
