Snowy owl hurt in 2011 released near Chicago

January 23, 2012 at 07:30 PM

The Associated Press

GLEN ELLYN — A snowy owl struck by a SUV in November has been released into a forest preserve in suburban Chicago.

The Daily Herald reports the bird was released this morning into Pratt’s Wayne Woods Forest Preserve near Bartlett.

The bird was injured in November, suffering an eye injury, a broken clavicle and two broken ribs.

The owl was taken to recover at Willowbrook Wildlife Center in Glen Ellyn, which is operated by the DuPage County Forest Preserve District.

Wildlife keeper LuAnn LaSusan says the injuries were “fairly substantial.”

She says the bird was in Illinois looking for food.

Now that the bird has been released officials hope it will migrate north to Wisconsin, Minnesota or Canada.
