ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) – A baby Great Horned Owl has an amazing story to tell its friends.

The owl became wedged inside of an air conditioner of the owner of Black Dog Salvage.

According to a Facebook post by the Southwest Virginia Wildlife Center of Roanoke on Sunday, April 11, Conservation Police Officer Wilson searched the owner’s property for the nest, but was unable to find one.

So, the owl was taken to the Southwest Virginia Wildlife Center for rehabilitation.

“Not all renest attempts are successful but we are so grateful for private organizations like Brown Hound Tree Service and great folks at the Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources that donate their resources, time, and skills to help wildlife,” the wildlife center wrote on Facebook. We would also like to thank the rescuer for finding this owlet and supporting our efforts to renest him.”
