Thanks to the Sullivan’s for noticing this grounded great horned owl and getting help with the rescue from a local veterinarian. The Sullivan’s transported the owl to meet up with Kay. Kay’s initial exam indicates an old humerus fracture near the elbow joint and that the owl is a bit thin. This great horned owl will spend some time in ICU adding weight before transfer to the GHO flight pen for rehab and flight evaluation.
