Great-horned Owl rescue by Wild At Heart and Phoenix Police

On Sunday February 7, 2016 Wild At Heart received a request for help from Phoenix PD to rescue a Great-horned Owl in North Phoenix near  Tatum Ranch. The officers were on their desert patrol when they found the owl in trouble. It seems the owl had a wing injury and couldn't fly very far, but it sure could hit the ground and run! With the combined help of the officers and a Wild At Heart volunteer the owl was successfully corralled and brought to the care facility for Bob and Sam Fox to evaluate and begin treatment. This is the 36th bird received so far in 2016.
