Species: Barn Owl Tyto alba
Life History: Casper came to FKWBC in 2011 with an infection in her right wing. Our hospital staff were able to save her life by partially amputating the area of infection, but unfortunately the procedure made Casper non-releasable. Since she is missing part of her wing, she is unable to hunt and survive naturally in the wild. However she is quite happy living with us at the Wild Bird Sanctuary, sleeping away the day in her "hut".
