09102018 Great Horned Owl - 1
This great horned owl was found in Fort Wayne. It was caught between a building and chicken coop. It had a severe mouth infection. This inflection had affected its ability to eat. It was pretty thin when it made its way to our treatment center.
Its infection finally cleared up after 4 weeks and it was moved to our rehabilitation facility.
After a month in our rehabilitation facility its mouth infection was back. It was moved back to our treatment facility for another round of medication for pain and probable fungal infection. Treatment lasted about 6 weeks and then back to our rehabilitation facility.
The owl started creance training, which is basically allowing him to fly while tethered. This enables us to monitor his flying ability and potential to be released.
