Tiny predators rescued: This baby great horned owl is one of nine being raised by veterinarians at Washington State University after the birds’ nests were destroyed. The owlets, five from one nest and four from another, are being hand-fed a diet of cut-up mice until they are strong enough to eat on their own. They must be fed three times a day. The first four were brought to the university April 13 at roughly 1 week old. Four days later, the second group arrived, at only a few days old. View a video from the WSU veterinary hospital here.
