Snowy Owl Rescue
Time for a rant!!!!
It was a mature male, had a severe mite infestation and had clearly
never been handled. Due to his age, a quite life in an aviary was required,
unfortunately his new owners had been chasing him around his aviary
on a daily basis in an attempt to catch and handle him. This had caused
severe feather and wing damage as he has been trying to get away and
hitting the mesh of his aviary.
This owl was ok in the end, but due to a lack of knowledge on his owner’s behalf, he had been put through unnecessary stress. A little research would have given his new owners at least a little insight into what they were letting themselves, and the owl, in for.
