Recovered Owl Returns To The Wild

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.

  • Don’t commercialize hunting - November 20, 2014
    The state of New Jersey is dealing with a huge whitetail deer overpopulation problem. To get more people to get out and hunt those deer, and hopefully bring the population down to a more manageable level, the state is toying with the idea of allowing the commercial sale of meat from wild deer.
