This approximately 8 week old Great Horned Owl was found entangled in a soccer net! Once the bird was freed from the net it was admitted to make sure there were no injuries from the encounter. The bird has no wounds or fractures and is quite healthy! As this bird is still too young to be completely on its own, so it will stay at TRC until a suitable foster nest can be found in Rexburg!
Update: Unfortunately no foster nest was found so the bird is being raised at TRC until it is old enough for release. The bird's hunting abilities have been tested and the bird has proved it is able to hunt both at night and day! The bird has moved to a large mew and has begun flight conditioning, currently doing 9 flights every other day.
