TWIN LAKE, Mich. (AP) - A young, male snowy owl will soon make his return to the wild after recovering at the Braveheart Raptor Rehabilitation Center in Twin Lake.

The Muskegon Chronicle (https://bit.ly/1T2vg9L ) reports that the owl was unable to fly after it somehow ended up covered in sludge in one of the wastewater ponds at the Muskegon County wastewater site.

Two county wastewater system employees consulted with Braveheart’s director before picking up the owl and bringing it to the center.

The owl was given a thorough cleaning and X-rays at Fruitport Animal Hospital. The following day, the owl flew inside the 40-foot-long enclosure at Braveheart, and he’s been flying daily ever since.

Braveheart volunteers are set to release the snowy owl Tuesday afternoon after he spent nine days at the center.
