The Howell Nature Center has rescued a snowy owl found injured on Friday in Linden, Michigan.

The organization said in a press release that the bird, a young male, was struck by a vehicle and sustained damage to its right wing.

"While the HNC wildlife team rarely has the time or resources to go out on rescue missions, two staff members offered to help as they knew that this young snowy owl was highly susceptible to predation," the release said.

The Howell Nature Center said they are optimistic that his wing will heal and that they'll be able to release the bird back into the wild.
