Students save life of future owl 'ambassador'
Colin Moynier, Collin Fleck and Tyler McKinnon stand with Second Chance Wildlife Rehab director Debbie Souza-Pappas as she holds the young owl the young men saved in Price last October. The college students found the owl at night in the street behind Smith's Food & Drug store. The owl, a young male, was weak and unable to move much, putting him at risk of being hit by a car had the students not protected him until help arrived. Unfortunately, although he has healed, he's missing a part of his wing so he cannot be released into the wild.
"We're searching for an appropriate place to send him as an educational ambassador," said Souza-Pappas. "Since he is a young bird, he will adjust to this new life well."
Moynier is a freshman at the University of Utah; Fleck and McKinnon are freshmen at USU Eastern.
