Animal rescue: Tawny owl found in 'sorry state' released into wild after 'lovely spa bath' from Scottish SPCA
A female tawny owl received care in the form of a ‘lovely spa bath’ after she was found in ‘sorry state’ up a chimney.
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!”
