RIP Luna the Barn Owl

Sadly Luna the Barn Owl passed away unexpectedly this week.
She was very weak one afternoon so brought in to the care box but died overnight.
One of the Vets did a post mortem which showed that not only was she a male but she died of suspected clostridium poisoning. They didn't see any spores so think he may have come to us immunosuppressed and this was a secondary reason, it may also explain some of the strange behaviours and toe dusting.

We're going to have to be doubly careful with food from now on and make sure all the pigeons are fully eviscerated and frozen for a month before being fed to the birds.
