The SPCA’s Wild Animal Rehabilitation Centre (Wild ARC) needs your help.
Their latest owl patient was believed to have been hit by a car, and sadly lost its eye.
“We are optimistic this owl can live out a normal life, as owls assess depth not with their eyes, but with their ears,” explained Meg Hatch, assistant manager at Wild ARC.
So far they estimate it will cost at least $2,700 to give the bird its best chance. That number could rise, as the bird also suffered trauma to her chest and ear.
The SPCA is looking for donations to help cover costs for the owl’s medical fees, as well as others like it. They would also like to remind motorists to pay extra attention driving, as sometimes scavengers will be attracted to food scraps on the sides of roads.
