PROMONTORY POINTERS 2/16/11
Jim Mitchell rescued a barn owl caught in some fence wires. It hurt its wing, was in shock and one of its feet was drawn into a grasping shape due to hypothermia. Jim and Starr cleaned its wing (after putting a hood on it to prevent biting) and wrapped it to keep it warm in a cage. The next day they took it to Ogden to the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center on 12th Street. After rehabilitation the center will release the barn owl back in Promontory into familiar surroundings.
The Wildlife Rehabilitation Center is totally a volunteer organization. They need old towels and old blankets for their rescue work. They also need volunteers. If interested in doing volunteer work, please call (801) 814-7888.
Starr Mitchell also reports she is grateful for the Box Elder County bookmobile. “I really love to read. There are about 10,000 titles to choose from.”
