Patient of the Week: Great-horned Owl

This majestic owl has gone through a lot over the course of the last several months. He came to Tucson Wildlife Center after a reported collision with a vehicle. Since his initial admission, he has consistently been defensive and alert which is always a good sign going into rehabilitation. This patient was diagnosed with a fracture of the right-wing. Our vet staff was able to conduct a successful surgery and what came next was a long healing process. Like most animals in rehabilitation, he had a mix of good days and bad days but one thing that never changed was his attitude. Today, he is on the last leg of his time at TWC as he is in our large flight enclosure working on acclimating to longer flights. Through it all, he has been able to overcome adversity and stay sassy every step of the way!
