The Three Ring Ranch Exotic Animal Sanctuary (www.3rr.org) is in Kona, Hawaii. This is the release of a pueo (Hawaiian owl) that was hit by a car and rehabbed at the Sanctuary. See more of our videos at www.3rr.org/video_links.htm or learn more about Hawaii’s unique (and endangered) creatures on our website.
Pueo inhabit forests and grasslands throughout the islands of Hawaii, although their numbers are declining rapidly, particularly in the last two decades, and especially on the island of Oahu, upon which they were at one time very prevalent. Pueo are now listed as an endangered species.
