WildCare's Wildlife Hospital treats nearly 4,000 ill, injured and orphaned wild animal patients from over 200 species every year. This is one patient's story.
This large, and otherwise healthy Great Horned Owl was found by a Novato resident, right outside her front door. The bird had been hit by a car and was obviously severely injured.
Fortunately, this owl's rescuer knew he needed to come to WildCare for the medical care he so desperately needed!
Once in the Wildlife Hospital, Medical Staff quickly gave the bird fluids and pain medication.
