A Great Horned Owl was hanging around a home and twice found under the church pew on their front porch. It would not fly off or very high off the ground. They didn’t want dogs or coyotes to kill it, so me, Ed and
Marvin Ann went out to catch it. It really wasn’t a problem with a couple of dip nets, so definitely something wrong with it.
After a Petco trip to purchase a little grub for it until I get a return call from one of the Raptor people, it is safe in our pet crate and hopefully, eating the crickets, meal worms and the pinkie mouse. It actually took the mouse from my tongs, but spit it right back at me.
Thanks to Kayla and Josh for coming out and meeting us with the crate and to Kayla for this picture.
Say a little prayer for this beauty, we’re not having much success in handing them off and them living. We will still always give it our best shot though.
UPDATE: I have received a return call and will be taking the owl to Bonham tomorrow afternoon to meet a rehabber. There’s the first step!
