On October 4th an eagle owl was found tangled in a kite string hanging from a pine tree by some ramblers. The fire department who was informed of the unfortunate event contacted us and a rescue operation was put together straight away. Once rescued the bird was given first aid for the first couple of days at Thessaloniki before being sent to the Hellenic Wildlife Hospital (EKPAZ). The eagle owl is now in an aviary to regain strength and will hopefully be realeased back into the wild soon.
