“I Heard Your Message, But….”

“….I fed it anyway. I didn’t understand why I shouldn’t feed it. Why shouldn’t I feed it anyway?”

So much for being able to put what used to be a perfectly healthy baby Great Horned Owl back in its nest. Thanks to the straw full of water that its rescuer put in its mouth, the owlet is now fighting for its life.

Case: 09-100
Species: Great Horned Owl
Diagnosis: aspiration pneumonia

The instructions that we and other wildlife rehabilitation centers provide are designed to keep rescuers from doing unintended harm….please follow them.
