    Bad humans are going to be the death of me.

    If anyone reading this has any connections whatsoever with anyone at all who could help track down these despicable people and with any luck at all this poor bird before it dies (including criminal psychics, animal communicators), please, please reach out to them immediately.

    You never know who amongst us might have just the right connection at just the right time....

    Many thanks for taking the time to read this.

    Oh that's horrible news!!!!! I love the Raptor Trust. That place is magnificent.

    I can't believe someone would do such a thing!!!! With such a large reward, I really hope the owl is safely returned.

    GREAT NEWS!!!!! I'm so glad he's back. [​IMG]

    I sure hope this was a one shot thing and that it doesn't happen again. The Raptor Trust is a wonderful place, and anyone who is anywhere near where it is in NJ should take a trip there once it reopens to the public. It's really beautiful grounds that's so rich with natural wildlife that it makes you feel like you're walking through somewhere exotic. They also have several cages set up with birds that they have rescued/rehabbed that can't be returned to the wild based on their conditions - including several birds of prey and others. They're always taking in injured birds/wildlife and fixing them. Even if you live a couple hours away - it's worth the drive when the weather is nicer.
