COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - A great horned owl living above a pillar in a Colorado Springs strip mall is having a hard time staying home!

Colorado Parks and Wildlife responded to calls of an owlet on the side walk when they found the baby on the ground. CPW officers carefully lifted the owlet back up into the nest with it’s two siblings, but it didn’t stay. The other siblings in the nest above the pillar quickly shoved the owlet out and back onto the ground. This reportedly happened two more times.

The officers decided to place the outcast owl on a nearby pillar away from the others, fearing it would not survive on the ground. The owl decided it did not want to stay there either and was found again on Friday about a quater mile from the nest.

CPW officials says they will continue to try and help the owl as best they can.
