A screech owl was recently released in the Fort Steele area, after spending months rehabilitating from injuries at a sanctuary in the Lower Mainland.

The owl was discovered by a B.C. Conservation Officers Service member last fall while on patrol. The nocturnal bird of prey was transported to O.W.L. Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Society in Delta, where it made a full recovery.

“Thank you to OWL and all the volunteers who helped make this possible,” wrote the B.C. COS, in a Facebook post.
