This little Great Horned Owl was caught in a barbwire fence but I can't call him BARBIE, I believe it's a male. So his name is KEN. He was found near Lander and taken to the Wind River Veterinary Hospital for immediate care. They sutured up the damage caused by the fence and the next day he arrived here thanks to two WGF people from the Lander office.

KEN is on antibiotics and he'll go into Dr. Blessing on Monday for xrays to make sure there are no broken bones. He's been a quiet bird and takes his mice from the end of my forceps. Hopefully he'll heal well enough and have strength in that wing for flight.
