Ipswich paramedics come to the rescue of feathered patient

IPSWICH paramedics have come to the rescue of one of their most unusual patients after an early-morning discovery on the side of the road.

Advanced care paramedics David Taylor and Seminah Williams discovered a barn owl on the side of the road.

The little bird had a badly-injured wing and the two paramedics did the same they would for any human patient. - it was taken to the RSPCA's Wacol animal hospital to be treated.

Vets are now assessing the animal's condition.

Catch up on the efforts of RSPCA's animal hospital with this photo essay by the QT's Inga Williams.
