WAA Employees Rescue Owl
October 15, 2014
Winnipeg Airports Authority employees rescued an injured Great Horned Owl last week. Upon discovering an injured owl at the airport, we contacted Lisa Tretiak (pictured below) from Prairie Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre to assess him and take him back to the centre for care and rehabilitation.
After a visit to the veterinarian, it was discovered that the owl broke its left hallux. We’re happy to hear that the break has been cared for and that the owl is now recovering nicely.
We would like to thank the team at Prairie Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre for caring for the owl while it heals from its injury and wish it a speedy recovery!
