Owl hit by car in O'Neill Tunnel

Owl in the O'Neill Tunnel

Updated.

A snowy owl that somehow got into the O'Neill Tunnel fared little better than Larry the Turkey: Mass. Environmental Police report the bird was scooped up near the Government Center exit yesterday and rushed to the Tufts wildlife clinic in Grafton for treatment. The Globe reports the bird died.

I don't think you're funny. There are many of us who actually give a damn about other species. If you took the time to actually learn something about owls you might be surprised at how amazing they are, and that we are so fortunate as to have them migrate through the city of Boston is something to be appreciate.

JFC. I have a perpetual monthly donation to the Sierra Club, which is an odd thing for someone who doesn't "actually give a damn about other species".

Well camouflaged for the concrete jungle!
