YAKIMA, WA - Yakima County Sheriff's Deputies are looking for a person who stole a 14-year-old tawny owl named "Sherman" from the Raptor House Rehabilitation Center for Birds of Prey on Wiseacre Road off of East Selah Road in Yakima.

According to deputies, on Friday, January 31st an unknown person entered the large enclosed building on the property where a variety of birds are kept and stole the bird.  

Sherman weighs less than sixteen ounces and is dark reddish-brown in color with pink colored eyelids.
