Yarmouth – A Natural Resource Officer responded to a report of an injured owl earlier today.
It was clear to the Yarmouth Division of Natural Resources officer that the injured Great Horned Owl was suffering and obviously needed help right away.
The stricken owl was immediately transported to a wildlife rehab for emergency examination and treatment.
It’s uncertain how the owl was injured, but rehab personnel believe its injuries could be internal and possibly sustained from a car strike.
The owl’s current condition is unknown at the time of this report and it remains uncertain whether it will survive, but its rescuers are hoping for the best.
HN will provide updates as they become available.
UPDATE: According the Department of Natural Resources, the owl was transported to the Cape Wildlife Center in Barnstable Village.
