In January 2014, a snowy owl was hit by a bus in Washington, D.C. Since some of its feathers were burned, scientists in a rehab center in Minnesota are using a procedure called imping to help it fly again. This traditional method will allow the bird’s feathers to be replaced with ones from other owls of the same species.

  1. It is very sad it got hit by a bus, but I’m glad scientists are helping it get back to the wild where it belongs.
