This Great Horned was found entangled in a barbed wire fence. Luckily the bird was able to be freed by it's finders and transported the same day thanks to a volunteer member of the Raptor Rescue Network! The bird went into surgery the next day at Jackson Animal Hospital to get several puncture holes and lacerations sutured close. Treatment now includes frequent wound care and antibiotics to prevent infection.
Update: So far there are no signs of infection and the bird is starting to perk up!
