Owly is a female Great Horned Owl. She hatched in 2004 and when she was just a few months old Owly was brought to Teton Raptor Center after breaking her wing as a result of being struck by a vehicle. Unfortunately, Owly's break extended into her wrist joint and after the break healed the joint no longer functioned properly. Owly gained a new purpose as the first Resident Raptor of Teton Raptor Center. She has taught more than 100,000 people about raptors!
