HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) _ Three snowy white baby owls rescued and raised at the Hutchinson Zoo are back in the wild.

A Reno County resident found the owls three months ago when cutting down a tree. At the time, they were so small that zoo staff didn't know what kind of owls they were.

After being raised at the zoo's rehabilitation center, the last of the three owls was released Wednesday.

Zoo director Jana Durham says the three were among 10 owls rehabilitated at the zoo this year. She says she's not sure why the zoo rehabilitated so many owls this year.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/NGZTV1 ) the owls have a lifespan of eight to 10 years
