Owl Rescue

What happens when a Great Horned Owl gets tangled up in fishing line and dangles 30 feet above the American River next to the water treatment plant? Animal Care Officer to the rescue, that’s what! The City of Sacramento’s Department of Public Works Lighting Crew loaned us their bucket truck to rescue the owl. These pictures tell an incredible story of doing whatever it takes to save wildlife. This lucky owl is doing fine and is on his way to wildlife rescue!
