Man Struggles To Free Terrified Baby Owl Tangled Up In Fishing Line

Almost everyone who cares even a little bit about animals likes to imagine what they would do if they had to rescue one. Few of us, however, are ever forced to rise to the occasion.

One man was unfortunately put into that situation while out fishing on a lake in New Jersey. Walking to the perfect spot to cast off, he heard a terrible screech coming from nearby.

After a quick search, he located the source of the commotion: a terrified baby owl had snagged its wing on a stray fishing line and was unable to free itself. The man immediately sprang into action to rescue the poor creature, though, it's what happened afterward that was truly amazing...

While out fishing on a New Jersey lake, a man heard screeching coming from somewhere close to him. Upon investigating, he discovered a tiny owl that had caught his wing on a strand of stray fishing wire—and he was unable to free himself.
Right away, the man knew he had to help him or he wouldn't survive for very long. His first step was to un-snag the wire from the branch it had been wrapped around. This was followed by carrying the owl back toward his bag.
The owl was absolutely terrified and clearly wasn't a fan! After managing to ease the tension of the situation, the man took the owl into his hand. Then, he reached for a tool from his bag, but it didn't look like this rescue would be easy. Just watch how the owl reacted...
Using a simple pair of nail clippers, the man set to work attempting to free the frightened owl from his wiry shackles. Somehow, he managed to calm the bird throughout the "surgery" and was able to free his wing from the line.
