Post-Rehab, Injured Snowy Owl Ready For The Wild

Post-Rehab, Injured Snowy Owl Ready For The Wild
ST. PAUL, MN -

A rare snowy owl that was apparently hit by a bus in the nation's capital and sent to Minnesota for rehab is back in the wild once again.

The Raptor Center at the University of Minnesota released the owl on Saturday outside Superior, Wis., near the Minnesota and Wisconsin state border.

Center director Julia Ponder says the owl is in great condition and flew off with strong, steady wing beats. She says it will hopefully head north.

The owl was found injured in downtown Washington in late January and taken to the National Zoo before being transferred to a Washington, D.C., wildlife rehabilitation center. It then came to Minnesota for rehab, because The Raptor Center has expertise in replacing damaged feathers.

Snowy owls are native to the Arctic.
