Hospital update–week of February 10

The hospital received 35 animals last week, bringing the total to 214 for this year.

One of the patients was a barn owl that was found stuck on a glue trap that was meant for rodents. Sticky traps are never appropriate to use outdoors because many unintended animals can become entrapped. Even indoors, they are an inhumane control method for rodents. Please do not use glue traps.
