Moon the sooty owl released back to her home in the wild after being hit by a car.
Moon the sooty owl was brought into the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital by a member of the public after she was hit by a car. An assessment from the veterinary team confirmed that Moon had sustained a fractured leg and pelvis from the collision.
Moon was admitted to the birds ICU where she received close monitoring and around the clock care from our dedicated veterinary team. After a month in care the veterinarian was confident Moon could begin her rehabilitation and she was sent out with one of our wonderful wildlife carers to gain the strength needed to return to the wild.
Moon spent almost three weeks with a carer who specialises in bird rehabilitation where she grew confident enough for release. After one last check up with our veterinary team all of those involved in Moon’s treatment and care were happy to clear her for release back into the wild.
Thanks to you, Moon and many other native Australian animals who become sick, injured or orphaned are given a second chance.
Fact: The Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital is one of the busiest wildlife hospitals in the world. Since opening in 2004 we have treated over 115,000 patients and counting.
