Zoo Atlanta Officials Searching For Missing Owl

ATLANTA (AP) — Zoo Atlanta officials say they’re searching for a barn owl that flew away from trainers over the weekend.

Zoo spokeswoman Keisha Hines says Soren, a 2-year-old male, had been tracked to Cherokee Avenue after flying from trainers Sunday but may no longer be wearing tracking equipment.

Hines says Soren is about 10 inches tall and is most likely to be found in leafy branches high in the tree canopy. Hines says the owl may come to the ground for food and is wearing leather anklets on each foot. Hines says the owl also has a gold band on his left foot.

Zoo officials say Soren isn’t a danger to humans or pets.

Hines says the owl is fearful of strangers and anyone who sees him should call Zoo Atlanta security.
