My "angel" is flying away

This is certainly not an angel altho his name is HALO. He's a nasty owl and was not at all pleased to be caught up this morning. Little did he know but he was flying free in about an hour. Sara, Loki and I drove up the Northfork near Wapiti, drove south on a very muddy, slippery road into the National Forest and opened the door of the crate. He blasted out and headed west, we never saw him land.

HALO came here in February after being flown over from Story via Gillette. He had a fractured wing and was very weak. Needless to say, this photo shows just how strong is is now. Thanks to Diane Morse in Gillette for arranging the charter flight, Bob and Ryan of Flightline for donating their services, Erika with the WGF who accompanied the owl here and Dr. Malcolm Blessing for the repair surgery on the broken wing bone.
