Borough animal control officer Henry Perez said the young bird, believed to be a horned owl, appeared to have an eye infection. He was taking the owl to Garden State Veterinary Specialists in Tinton Falls for treatment.
“Hopefully, after a couple of days of antibiotics, he’ll be all better so I can release him back into the area,” Perez told redbankgreen. (Photos by Henry Perez. Click to enlarge.)
