I’m excited to share with you that Sunday evening I released the great horned owl which had been discovered hanging from a branch over the Red Cedar River in Menomonie. To avoid a group of crows attacking the owl, I released it close to sundown.
You may recall that the owl was recovering from getting one wing bound up in fishing line that was hanging on a tree branch. In an attempt to get free, the other wing had been fully extended. The Menomonie Street Department used a boom to rescue the owl, and a warden brought it to me.
Her wing is recovered and she is flying normally. She will be fine in the wild. I expect her to lead a normal life.
