Not only is Dr. Struve at Veterinary Associates of Manning one of SOAR’s go-to docs… count her among rescuers now! She and daughter were out driving near Prairie Rose State Park in Shelby County and came upon an adult great horned owl that had likely been hit by a car — not theirs. This male owl has a fractured right radius.
