Each year when Short-Eared Owls appear here lots of young owls die on the roads. They have sadly a habit to hunt on roadsides. They fly low and don`t have an idea of fast driving cars. This owls right wing was broken but othervise it`s in good shape. I`ve served death voles to it and it has eaten those with good appetite. Tomorrow it may drive with bus to Ranua Zoo.
Auli, mrs mattisj took this pic, thanks.
