A few years ago, a snowy owl was hit by a car in Cape Cod. The owl was rehabbed and released back to the wild when fully recovered. On Monday, March 18, 2019 in New York, a baby owl went through a similar ordeal. Around two in the morning, Officers Jeremy Arciello and Kenneth Palmer noticed a small owl on the side of the road on Colonel Chandler Drive.

The baby owl had been hit by a car. With instructions from a wildlife rehabilitation center, they moved the owl from harm’s way. Officer Seyfarth, a colleague from the police department, kindly took the small animal to the Marbletown Animal Hospital. The owl was thoroughly checked and it turns out the strong, little guy didn’t even have broken bones and is expected to make a full recovery.

The Kingston Police Department provided updates on the baby owl’s health on their Facebook page throughout the day, and they announced that the owl was turned over to Veterinarian and Wildlife Rehab Professionals. The wildlife rehab team is optimistic about the bird’s recovery! The ultimate goal is to release the owl where he was found.

This precious baby owl is now safe thanks to the kindness of the Kingston police offers who stepped in to help an animal in need!
