Snowy Owl Update
In January we reported on two Snowy Owls in our care. We are very happy to report that both are recovering nicely.
Tribute to Emily the Woodrat
Emily came to us on July 4, 2011. She was a tiny, pink creature no more than a week old. At first we weren’t even sure what she was, but it was soon determined that she was a Bushy-tailed Woodrat.
We are pleased to bring you the story of one very lucky Great Grey Owl that was brought to our first aid station in Drayton Valley early December. Our volunteer vet, Savannah Howse-Smith from Rocky Rapids Veterinary Service, assisted Lil at our first aid station with an exam and x-rays to find that both wings were broken.
