Webster Co Barred Owl

adult barred owl Admission Date: 22 May 2016

Location of Rescue: Webster County, along US 20
Cause of Admission / Condition: Grounded, suspect collision with vehicle
Patient Status: Patient Archive

A SOAR volunteer rescued this barred owl from along US 20 in Webster County. Given the location of rescue and that there is blood on the beak, we suspect this owl was hit by a vehicle. The owl does not appear to have any fractures, although is quite thin. Hopefully with some rest and ‘groceries’ this owl can make good progress and get to the flight pen for rehab.
