FOUNTAIN, Colo. (WHDH) — Wildlife officials in Colorado rescued an owl whose talons got caught on treble hooks from a fishing lure on Tuesday.
Two members of the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Southeast Region found the hooks embedded in the talons of a great horned owl at Fountain Creek Nature Center.
The pair cut the lure and fishing line, freeing the owl.
The wild bird flew away following the rescue.
