Van Gogh

Birth Date:
Arrival Date:

Van Gogh was discovered in the road by a passing motorist, conscious and coherent
but with severe injuries to the left side of her head. Unfortunately, many screech owls are hit by cars, especially during the winter months; headlights illuminate insects on roadways, enticing screech owls right into the path of oncoming vehicles. Van Gogh had to have one eye removed, but this alone wouldn’t have prevented her from being released. Her more serious injury was a damaged eardrum, which would prevent her from accurately locating prey while hunting.
