Lots of wildlife down in the Valley, and I'm not just talking about the people coming out of Tunies. Thank you to Carol Webster for sending me these pictures of a very large owl trapped near Smith Street. Props to Geno Letina for helping to save the frightened bird.
I was cycling during the summer on Exchange Street (near Smith) and spotted a bird very similar to this one on the ground across the street from the Larkin Building. A spokesman from the D.E.C. was on hand at the scene last night and said the hungry owl was probably in the area in search of "Valley Rats".
