Update on Our Temporary Guest

Here's a small update on our owl friend:

When "Bo" was dropped off at the local zoo, we were not only given zoo passes as thanks, but after asking for contact information so we could get updates on the owl, we received a call on Saturday.

The zoo's hospital staff confirmed that "Bo" was suffering from some sort of head trauma--very likely caused by a collision with a car that Tuesday night. They said they were having to force-feed the owl, which doesn't sound good to me, but they also said that they thought our feathered friend might very well make a full recovery and even be able to be re-released into the wild, rather than spend his days in a sanctuary.

I have no issues with wild animal sanctuaries. I think that they are wonderful and admire the people who dedicate so much time and effort to help those creatures which cannot return home. Still, I'm much more pleased with the fact that "Bo" might be able to fly completely free again some day soon.

That's all for now, then.


  1. So glad to hear he's doing well! What would be really awesome would be if after he's released, he came back to your area and you got to see him again! How cool would that be?!
