MONROE - A sick great horned owl chick was rescued last week after students found it on the playground of Northside Elementary School. The chick, then only 2 and a half weeks old, was found struggling on the playground March 28, Northside Principal Amy Timmerman said. "Our students are very compassionate," Timmerman said, adding that the students in the playground were so "enthralled" by the young bird that it prompted a response from the state Department of Natural Resources.
