01192021-Great Horned Owl-1
On 1/19, Soarin’ Hawk received a call from a couple who found a Great Horned owl in the median on US 24 and 31 in Peru, Miami county. They stopped to investigate, and the owl flew across the median, and that’s all the owl could handle. They were able to capture the owl and put it in a box. I met the couple in Huntington and transported the owl to our treatment facility in Huntertown where it was triaged by Nicole. Nicole found blood on his feet and beak. Its keel indicated that he had been eating. He will be further evaluated.
