Franklin - Great Horned Owl
Franklin was found on a 20 acre tract of land at the Pasco/Hernando border by a private land owner. He had a complicated fracture of which the cause is unknown and was treated at Busch Gardens Animal Care Center prior to being adopted by McGough in May of 2012.
Franklin is not too keen on waking up early to go to events. He would rather stay in and cozy up to Eleanor before having to start his day.
Eleanor - Great Horned Owl
Prior to coming to McGough in September of 2012, Eleanor was rescued on Fox Hollow Golf Course in North Pinellas County. She was treated at Busch Gardens Animal Care Center for eye injuries which could have been caused by the talons of another owl or bird of prey - or - some other unknown cause. As a result, she has limited vision.
Eleanor enjoys walks out to the intercoastal waterways where the wind blows through her feathers.
