Happy Ending

We received a call today from a company on the Tachbrook retail park in Leamington Spa, asking for help as they had an owl on their car park. Fearing that it was injured as it wasn’t flying away we headed over there immediately. To our surprise when we arrived we were confronted by a Snowy Owl – not what we were expecting. He had anklets on and was clearly very tame and judging by his size and markings wasn’t very old. It was easy to get hold of him as he was so tame and he had no injuries. We transported him home and once we had put jesses, a swivel and leash on him we offered him some food, although he wasn’t hungry because he was up in weight. Then we started the job of trying to track down his owner. This actually didn’t take very long as a quick phone call to Warwickshire Police was all that was needed; he had been reported as missing in the morning. We then contacted his owner, who was very happy and relieved at the news and they have now been reunited. All in all a very satisfactory day!
