Dakota still loose

Officials from the Wildlife In Need Center (WINC) on Tuesday said efforts to capture great horned owl, Dakota, that was taken from his cage about two weeks ago after a break-in at the center, so far have been unsuccessful.

However, WINC staff said that Dakota's healthy condition at the time of his capture is a great asset to his chances of survival in the wild since his escape from his captors the weekend of Nov. 12.

A post at said that Dakota is still in the area of Hunters Lake where staff has set up one feeding station in hopes of luring the owl down from the trees. WINC's Lisa Rowe said Dakota is likely very scared which is why he won't come down from the trees above. They also believe he may have moved to a nearby location that is better protected from wind and rain. The staff plans to set up another feeding station in that area in hopes of attracting the bird.
