LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

The Ellen Trout Zoo has a new animal baby - an approximately 10-day-old screech owl.

According to a post on the Ellen Trout Zoo's Facebook page, the baby screech owl has almost tripled in size since he was donated to the zoo. The baby screech owl is being hand raised by zoo staff, and he often eats small pieces of meat.

Check back for more updates on our little owl as he grows,” the Facebook post stated.
