CHP Officer Saves Stranded Baby Owl in Napa

A California Highway Patrol officer came to the rescue of a young owl in Napa last week.

Officer Ray was waved down Friday afternoon on the Napa-Vallejo Highway by a person who spotted an owl that couldn't fly. Worried about its safety, the man had placed the tiny bird in his pickup truck.

According to Officer Ray, the owl was still too young to fly so he brought it back to the CHP's Napa office and put it in a crate, from where the owl was safely transported to the Silverado Veterinary Hospital.

Veterinary staff will be taking care of the owl until it's big enough to fly.

We are happy to assist all wildlife in conjunction with wildlife rescue. It's been a very busy season with owls,... Posted by Silverado Veterinary Hospital on Sunday, April 5, 2015
