Recovered Owl Returns To The Wild

January 22, 2013 Jackson Hole, Teton County No Comments

Teton Raptor Center has announced it plans to release an immature female Great Gray Owl that was found by residents of the John Dodge neighborhood in Wilson. Residents observed the owl walking and hunting on the ground for several days before she was rescued and brought to Teton Raptor Center for rehabilitative care on December 22nd. Upon admittance, a radiograph showed a spiral fracture to a bone in her left wing. If left in the wild, the owl would have starved or been captured by another predator. The owl was most likely injured by being clipped by a passing vehicle. The Raptor Center plans to make the release Wednesday and invites the public to be on hand for the event at 5:30 pm at the Old Wilson Schoolhouse, which will coincide with Teton Raptor Center’s open house, where the public is invited to learn about Teton Raptor Center’s conservation and restoration plans for the historic Hardeman Ranch.

  • Towing with a half-ton - July 31, 2014
    I’ve been hauling horses with either a three-quarter-ton or a one-ton truck for about the past 10 years, and I’ve gotten kind of spoiled by the towing power of those old Ford diesels. Even with a heavy load cruising along behind me, I’d sometimes forget I was pulling a trailer. But when the F-350 started […]
