An owl is on the mend thanks to the actions taken by Kirkwood police officers last weekend.
On Sunday at 3:03 a.m., officers found the injured owl on side of road while on patrol in Kirkwood, according to the most recent Wildlife Hotline Call Log. Officers took the owl to the Kirkwood Police Department and kept it in a box. According to the log, the owl was calm.
The Bi-State Wildlife Hotline advised officers to keep the owl on site until they could pick it up at 8 a.m. and transport it to the World Bird Sanctuary in Valley Park. They were not to feed or give it water and keep the animal cool.
The owl was transferred to the World Bird Sanctuary Sunday morning and is still in rehab.
