Admission Date
Rescue Location
Syracuse, IN
Cause of Admission
Possible car strike

A person hit this eastern screech owl with their car. They kindly stopped and picked it up and took it to work with them. It escaped there and ran into a window.  A conservation officer from  Kosciusko County brought it to our treatment facility the following morning. After its initial evaluation it had  no apparent injuries. The decision was made to keep it for observation for a couple of days to make sure there was no head trauma. It appears to be doing well , so hopefully it can be released in the near future
