Last month, a kind friend of mine called me on a warm Saturday afternoon. She and her family were driving to Moab and had pulled off Interstate 70 for a pit stop.
There, they found an injured barn owl on the side of the road. The bird couldn’t fly and had trouble staying upright. It probably had been hit by a car. My friend wanted to help, but didn’t know what to do. I told her I could pick up the bird and get it to someone who could help it.
