Your CHP Santa Barbara Owl Response Team was back in action again today. 

We received a call of an injured owl on Refugio Road, north of Highway 101.  Missy Franks, a concerned citizen, caught the injured barn owl, who we named Owlbert.  Ms. Franks called your Santa Barbara CHP to the scene and Officer Clelland was able to secure Owlbert.  Officer Gutierrez transported Owlbert to the Santa Barbara Wildlife Care Network and they related they would attempt to save his life and rehab the little guy. 

*Disclaimer* We do not really have an owl response team.

Thank you @grace.and.flowers for Owlbert's name suggestion!

There are rumors flying about a spat between the Wildlife Care Network and the Ojai Raptor Rehab center. I hope that all differences can be resolved for the best of the birds.

Barn owls are so beautiful and undeniably vital to maintaining a healthy ecosystem. How wonderful that Owlbert has been rescued. I hope s/he recovers in record time.

Bravo! We are so lucky to have people looking out for wildlife, officers to respond, and a place to rehab them :)

Thank you all!
