The Center for Veterinary Health Sciences at Oklahoma State University recently released a rehabilitated barred owl. Helping with the release were the wife of the Good Samaritan, who brought the injured owl to OSU’s Veterinary Medical Hospital, and a client of the hospital’s Avian, Exotics and Zoo Medicine Service.

Dr. Joao Brandao, assistant professor of zoological medicine, shared information about owls in general with the small group who gathered to watch the release of one of nature’s magnificent creatures.
