Earlier in the month, this downy GHO was found grounded and sopping wet…and very vocal. After receiving a call from a client, nuisance animal remover Nathan Garnto of Allgood Pest Solutions conferred with me to confirm that the owl did need to be rescued and then brought me the bedraggled and ravenous little fellow.
He was found hung in a fence and while he favors his right wing, it doesn’t appear to be broken. We’ll aim for x-rays to confirm, but he may be another case of just needing a little R&R. Fingers crossed!
