Rehabilitated Osprey Released by Texas State Aquarium

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Wildlife experts at the Texas State Aquarium released an animal that they had nursed back to health Monday -- an osprey.

The adult fish-eating bird had suffered some injuries before being turned in to the Aquarium by a resident from Sarita, Texas.

"This is the first osprey we've had in about five years," Veterinary Technician Caitlin Lohman said. "So he came with some burns on one of his wings, and some on his chest as well. So we rehabbed him for a couple of moths and now he's gone."

The osprey was returned to the wild at the Hans and Pat Suter Wildlife Refuge.
