Tundra is a male Snowy Owl (Bubo scandiacus) who came to the WSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital in December of 2011. He was most likely hit by a car, and had two injuries to his left wing – a fractured radius/ulna and a dislocated elbow. The radius/ulna healed well, but the dislocation is irreparable. Because Tundra can no longer fully extend his left wing, he will never be able to fly.
