Last week when I went in for my regular dentist check-up,
I got the scoop and the photos for this post from my dental hygienist!
|She stated that as she was going in to work at the clinic that morning,|
she heard crows carrying on and making a much louder
commotion than their usual cries.
|Her curiosity got the best of her,|
so she went over to investigate the source of the crow's outcries.
Note the blue laundry basket...
This is what she and a co-worker used to capture
an owl that was being attacked by the crows!
|After successfully placing the basket over the owl,|
a call was made to the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.
This department is specially trained to deal with wild creatures
who wander out of their natural environment.
|If the owl is healthy,|
he will be returned to the wild.
If he needs medical attention,
we have a local veterinarian that will tend to his needs.
Many thanks to my dental hygienist Dena Sparks,
who furnished the material for this story,
and allowed me to publish her photos as well!
Great photos from a cell phone, don't you think?
I've done a couple of other posts on owls,
one of which features "Raptor Rehab of Central Arkansas".
Hopefully this owl was healthy enough not to need rehab.
