Snowy owl in DC

A snowy owl that has been spotted lately around Washington, D.C., is recovering after being hit by a bus. National Zoo veterinarians examined the bird, and it is not believed to have head trauma. The owl had a broken toe, and officials have tested whether it was exposed to rat poison. The bird was treated with antibiotics, fluids and pain medication and is recuperating at the City Wildlife and Rehabilitation Center. WRC-TV (Washington, D.C.) (1/30), National Journal (1/30)
