KILLINGWORTH, Conn. (WFSB) – Connecticut is home to magnificent wildlife, both in the air, on land and in the water.
And every day there are trained rehabilitators who come together to help these animals when they need it most, just like the people of ‘A place called hope‘ at Killingworth.
They specialize in caring for birds of prey, including these adorable orphaned horned owls.
This month, rehabilitation workers were called in to save two babies who lost their mothers to blood-thinning rodenticide poisoning, otherwise known as rat poison.
The weather that day made the rescue quite difficult, but A Place Called Home contacted the Guilford Fire Department and they responded immediately.
Firefighters raised their ladders and were able to retrieve the two babies to safety.
And thanks to their rapid action, these orphaned great horned owls are much better.
