On August 15th, 2020 a man dropped a Barred Owl off at the Humane Society of Noble County, saying the bird had struck the side of his car. No information was provided by this person. The owl was lethargic and had little resistance to being handled. Blood was found in the mouth and an eye injury was noted. HSNC contacted Soarin' Hawk and I gathered the necessary information and transported the bird to our I.C.U. Ellen assessed the owl and began triage. Photos were taken and an intake card completed.
