Barn owl at the Principal’s office

Last Thursday WIRES was called to rescue a Barn Owl trapped inside a building at the Living School in Lismore.

On arrival WIRES volunteer Julie immediately became aware of a Pied Currawong flying at the window where the Barn Owl was sitting on the inside, trapped inside the building.

When Julie was informed that it was in the Principal’s office, Harry Potter immediately came to mind.☺



With caution Julie contained the owl aka ‘Harry Potter’.

Harry has no injuries but he is a little undernourished and is currently in care with WIRES avian trained Raptor specialist, Melanie.

He is eating well and we believe he has learnt his lesson; he will be released back where he came from and is not required to attend the Principals office again.
