  1. IMPORTANT!!!! (please bump this up if it gets lost on other pages). My sister found a barn owl last night in her back yard. It was in dire straits and was gasping. She (and I) had no phone numbers of anyone (except Pete) to call to help this poor owl. By the time numbers and email addresses were gathered and notified, the owl had passed. She has it in her freezer and is in contact with Pete for a necropsy. This female owl had blood on her beak and on her talons which may be an indication of poisoning from her prey.
    1) Find and keep all numbers and contact information in case you find an owl that needs help. Be sure the numbers are current and handy. You may think you live in an area that has no owls, my sister is near Burbank, citified. They are out there, so you may have to have these numbers. We hope you never need them.
    2) If the owl dies, please freeze it for research.
    3)Do NOT ever, under any circumstances, use poison to kill rodents. It WILL kill the prey animals as well as hunters and they are sorely needed. I live rurally in Utah and we have coyotes and foxes. I understand that they upped the bounty on these animals (they leg trap here) and now we are overrun with squirrels, rabbits, snakes, gophers, mice. When you mess with the hunters, you create all kinds of havoc. Please save the hunters, do not poison their prey.
