Muddy popup

Barred Owl

Adopted by Ed and Sue Morris
Muddy was brought to us when he was about six months old. The people who found him at one week old wanted to keep him. This is illegal and he was soon taken from them. 
When he was brought to Birds in Flight, he was deemed a non-releasable imprint.  When wild animals are not raised by a parent or licensed rehabilitation facility in the proper way they become imprinted on humans. They are extremely dangerous and can attack people without fear. He was therefore placed in our program in 2003. .
