Animal rescue: Tawny owl found in 'sorry state' released into wild after 'lovely spa bath' from Scottish SPCA
Following her recovery, the Scottish SPCA recently released the owl back into the wild near Falkirk on a ‘warm Spring evening.’
The Falkirk Wildlife Conservation Group will continue to monitor the owl’s progress.
The recovery comes after the owl was found in ‘sorry state’ in a chimney ‘covered in suit and grime with inflamed eyes’.
A Scottish SPCA spokesperson said: “This tawny owl came in to our care in a sorry state.
"She was found in a chimney, skin and bone, covered in soot and grime with inflamed eyes.
"Thankfully her vision was okay and we treated her to a lovely spa bath and prescribed some much-needed medication.
"We kept an eye on her in our outdoor aviary as she built up her flight strength and regained weight.
"What a difference from when we rescued her!”
