Sad news today - RCV received it's very first Snowy Owl patient, but it died within moments of arrival. The owl was most likely hit by a plane and suffered traumatic injuries. We hope other Snowy Owls passing through the area are safe, and that if one does get hurt we'll be able to help!

Read about it in the Washington Post!
