An injured Boobook Owl

We recently had a boobook owl brought into the clinic. He was found and brought to us after he had suffered some sort of trauma. He injured his head and broke his leg. We gave him pain relief and the evening to recover from any shock. The next morning, we did a quick general anaesthetic and took an x-ray to make sure there were not any other injuries or breaks. We splinted the leg and organised for him to be rehabilitated with a registered career, to be released back into the wild.
