Rescued owl recovering after injury

Jul 1, 2019

A young owl rescued in the Indian Mound area by the Wareham Department of Natural Resources is successfully recovering at the Cape Wildlife Center, where he was brought after spending a night with an officer.

On the evening of June 5, the department officers found a one-eyed screech owl with beak injury. Due to its pre-existing conditions, the owl is not ready to be released back into the wild.  

According to a Facebook post by the department, the owl is doing great under the care of  Zak Mertz, the Executive Director of CWC, and the rest of the center’s staff. Officers paid the little owl a visit and reported that he is very active — and feisty!
