Antipolo City rescues horned owl
A horned owl has made its way to Antipolo City, and it is now being cared for thanks to the action of concerned citizens.
Antipolo City Mayor Andrea Ynares said on Facebook that two concerned citizens from Barangay San Jose found the owl and brought it to the City Veterinary Office.
It was then turned over to the Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office so that it could be returned to its natural habitat, she said.
She underscored the need to protect the wild animals by sharing that a study by the United Nations Environment Programme found that almost 1 million animal species are under threat of extinction.
