Help on the way..
The young great horned owl looks down at Conservancy Wildlife Clinic volunteers who successfully returned the owl to its nest tree. The two parent owls were located in a tree nearby watching the entire re-nesting process.
Please, if you find a young animal, immediately call the a rehaber in your area for advice before taking action. Do not attempt to raise wild baby animals as pets. All wild animals will grow and thrive only if they are given the appropriate, specialized diet they require. Wild animals never make good pets and it is unfair for these creatures to be kept in a captive setting. Also, it is illegal to care for native wild animals without the proper state and federal permits.
All healthy wild animals deserve to live a natural life in the wild!
