Today Lana received a call from Scott saying he had found an injured Screech Owl In Stroh, Indiana. The owl had been along the road and assumed to be hit by a vehicle. I drove to Stroh and examined the bird. The bird was lethargic and had a broken humerus high on the shoulder, Keel score 2.5-3. The bird was examined at our ICU and then euthanized due to the severity, and location of the injury.
