Blacksburg teen Dorathea Keys found a floundering baby owl in her backyard on Linwood Lane earlier this year. “Rowl” was 3 ½ weeks old when the Southwest Virginia Wildlife Center took over his care.

The owl was rehabbed by the Southwest Virginia Wildlife Center and released by naturalist Haley Olsen-Hodges on Monday evening.
