Lancaster Police Officers Bring in Badly Injured Owl at the End of their Shift

Lancaster OwlHUNTERSVILLE: Four Lancaster police officers drove an injured barred owl to the Carolina Raptor Center early Monday morning hoping to save its life.

The officers brought the injured owl to the Raptor Center after their shift was over in their personal vehicle. Cpl. Ken Warlick and Cpl. Josh Kelly found the owl face down on the yellow line on Arch Street near Willow Lake Road.

It appears the owl was hit by a car and suffered head trauma and eye issues. When the owl arrived, Raptor Center staff was very concerned.

"We've got a long way to go toward recovery," said Michelle Miller Houck, Carolina Raptor Center.

Charlotte and Carolina Raptor Center to Host Annual IAATE Conference, February 18-21, 2015

IAATE-logo-600wCHARLOTTE: If the peregrine falcons are more active uptown this February, we can tell you why! The International Association of Avian Trainers and Educators is holding their annual conference in Charlotte, hosted by Carolina Raptor Center.

Every year, the conference gathers trainers, educators, and bird consultants to a zoo, aviary or raptor center around the world. The conference is chock full of paper and poster presentations, workshops and entertainment during the four day run. The staff of Carolina Raptor Center pitched and won the conference two years ago and has been working with IAATE leadership on the planning committee over the past year to make it happen. CRC may be one of the smallest organizations to ever win the conference, a testament to the respect that it garners in the industry.
