Scout the Golden Eagle Earned YouTube Creator Award!

Title says it all! All we can add here is saying again: T H A N K Y O U!

Scout was rescued by Martin back in April of 2006. A rancher in Wyoming was complaining that an eagle was a threat to his livestock. Martin traveled to rescue him before he got shot.

One Great Horned Owl’s Lucky Break

Martin and Susan were called out to check on a Great Horned Owl in someone’s backyard. Upon arrival, Martin caught the injured owl and did a quick exam. The owl had a broken wing, but fortunately, one that could heal with a little time. After some time at our rescue center, this Owl was released back to the wild.

3 Hawks, 1 Owl and 23 Years!

September 29th is the 23rd Anniversary of the Southwest Wildlife Foundation of Utah. We were founded in 1997. To celebrate, we dug though the archives and found some old footage to share.

It’s old, very old, of much smaller frame size than usual.

Today’s tales include the releases of a Cooper’s Hawk, a Great Horned Owl and a Red Tail Hawk.

We’ll be sharing more bits from the archives all week.

Thank you for helping us help critters!
