Patient Profiles

Every day new patients arrive at our facility. In an effort to tell their story of survival and highlight the diverse number of species that we rehabilitate, we highlight a new patient each week. Some of these are individuals, others are orphaned siblings. As their cases progress - we will update the outcome - our hope is that many, many of these patients are released!

Sparred owl?

By Sarvey Wildlife / Monday, November 27, 2017 /

This little guy came to us from the Darrington area. He was found wet and cold on the ground in a shed. He appears to be a hybrid of a Spotted owl and a Barred owl. We suspect that he is suffering from rodenticide poisoning.

We have had several cases recently of poisoned patients, including the Long-tailed weasel we profiled a couple of weeks ago. PLEASE do NOT use poisons, they have unintended consequences.

The very species we need to keep our rodent populations under control are impacted by the rodenticides. Use snap traps instead for rats and mice, but use them in areas where other animals cannot be caught too. Secure your trash and remove pet food etc to keep rats away. Status - died. Sadly, the effects of the poisoning were too far gone and could not be reversed.
