Whooooo’s ready for Halloween?

Luna on pumpkin

No horror movie is complete without the eerie and spine-tingling hoo-hoo-hoooo and silhouette of an owl perched on an old, gnarly oak tree and staring with huge yellow eyes at wayward trespassers unwarily walking into a haunted house.
But Luna, the educational Great Horned Owl at the Wildlife Education and Rehabilitation Center isn’t concerned about frightening anyone (though the sight of those talons might make a rodent in the wild “give up the ghost”).  She’s just watching volunteers lay out her daily treat of yummy mice (real ones, not the chocolate-coated ones).
