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.
