Mangalore : A wonderful creature lay bruised on the footsteps of the Town Hall on April 5. It was a White Owl, also known as Barn Owl (Tyto Alba). The winged creature however could not fly, for its wings were injured.
It sat on the footsteps haplessly until help came its way in the form of the cleanliness staff of the Town Hall. The cleanliness staff under the direction of contractor Raghunath carefully lifted the bird and took it to the pet care clinic at Shaktinagar where it is being treated now.
Raghunath said once the owl is fine they will hand it over to the Pilikula sanctuary.
