Mina

Mina

Mina, a great horned owl (patient #16-3770) was brought to the clinic in December of 2016. She had suffered an injury and lost part of her wing. The amputation had completely healed before she was admitted to the hospital. She was otherwise in good health and it is suspected her mate had been caring for her in the wild.

Fun Fact: When clenched, a Great Horned Owl’s strong talons require a force of 28 pounds to open. The owls use this deadly grip to sever the spine of large prey.
