UPDATE: 03/05/2020 This owl has moved to its permanent home at Brookgreen Gardens in Murrells Inlet, SC

I received a group text message from Lynne on my way home from Costco, about a Screech Owl that needed to be picked up from the Roanoke Police Department.  It was 10 minutes from my house so I said sure.  Went in and met with officer Jim.  He indicated that they thought it had been hit by a car.  


Proceeded to take it to Pine Valley, where Dr. Pat gave it a quick look.  She mentioned about its eye possibly being damaged.


As always, prayers for its well being and a quick recovery.
