into Good Hands at WHS!
– The Wisconsin Humane Society’s
Wildlife Department is currently caring for two
baby screech owls that were found separately; both
accidentally fell to the ground far from the safety
of their nests. The babies were shaken and both
found on the ground crying for help.
Upon arrival at WHS, the baby owls were immediately
given a complete examination and are currently in
good condition. Our immediate concern is to get
them back to where they belong. The two baby owls
will be placed into replacement nest boxes and transferred
back to where they were found. Our hope is that
their cries for their parents will be heard and
these baby owl’s parents can resume caring
for them in their natural habitat.
If you find a nest or any baby bird on the ground,
please call us at 414-ANIMALS to get information
on what you can do to help. Wild animals, especially
baby birds, require specialized care that can only
be provided by licensed wildlife rehabilitation
facility such as the Wisconsin Humane Society’s
Interest/Photo-Op: Scott Diehl, Wildlife
Manager for the Wisconsin Humane Society, is available
for interviews and close up photos of the two baby
screech owls are available upon appointment. To
schedule an appointment, contact Jeffrey Raddatz
