This morning while firefighters were on their way to Station 7 at the St Augustine Beach Pier, they were stopped by a passing motorist on A1A who has discovered an injured baby owl on the side of the road, according to a report received by Historic City News today.
Wanting to attend to the injured animal, which had been carefully wrapped in a warm shirt, it was taken back to the firehouse until someone with the necessary veterinary training could be called.
HAWKE animal rescue in St Johns County agreed to accept the owl and provide any necessary medical care for its recuperation. The firefighters transported the owl to the rescue facility for treatment.
Everyone at Station 7 wanted to express their thanks to the citizen who initially stopped to aid the injured owl and to HAWKE for providing the needed assistance.
