A happy ending for a barred owl this past weekend! This one was hit by a car in June in Haverhill and luckily made it's way to Tufts. Mary picked him up Sunday and with Laurie and I in tow, we headed to Haverhill PD, met up with the wonderful Sgt. that found him, and released him back where he was found.
Despite the grouchy wench that owned the house in front of which he was found, who proceeded to yell at us while we stood in her driveway while the police sgt. asked her husband if it was all right to release the owl in the yard......all went well! Hubby said "go ahead", the woman was a bitch and refused to let us use her yard so we just released him in a clearing in the woods right next to her house. A wonderful sight watching him fly free again!
And to the woman....may the poop of a thousand owl's forever adorn your roof!
