A rescue owl which had to wear leg splints due to a growth disorderhas died.
Boo Boo the Turkmenian Eagle owl was born with legs that were too weak for her to stand alone on.
She was being cared for by The Hendra Farm and Talons Owl Centre in Cornwall, which said she fought until the very end.

Christmas has come early for some of the animals at Bristol Zoo as Santa paid an early visit to hand out presents filled with tasty treats.
The Zoo’s crowned lemurs, penguins and raccoons were given stockings and presents full of their favourite foods – fresh vegetables for the lemurs, fish for the penguins and meal worms for the meerkats.
The stockings and presents are more than just festive decoration as they are also a great form of enrichment, helping to keep the animals interested and active because they have to hunt and forage for their food, making dinnertime a little bit more exciting.
Tina Burke says these newly-hatched cygnets are a sign of the milder weather we have had recently.
