Male Eastern Screech Owl (Megascops asio)

Took in this male eastern screech owl (Megascops asio) last night. From the condition of this guy it is very apparent it was being kept in some kind of cage. Busted feathers, broken talon, bruised and injured cere. Smells of wet dog. Birds feathers are trashed. He will have to be molted out as there is nothing left to even try and imp.
Bird is also thin.
Going to take a while to get all new feathers grown in so it can fly.
