Halloween: Scary for Wildlife

Just a reminder about holiday decorations. Woven or stringy material outdoors can be dangerous to wildlife. Last year, in Marin, California, a Western screech owl was caught in fake spider webbing. The owl was cut from the material, treated for dehydration at WildCare, and later released.
