The reaction of the nocturnal predator was not quite what the man expected.
In the video below, the owl got lucky when it was found and rescued by golfer Craig Loving. The owl’s reaction was not quite what Craig expected.
The man noticed an owl sitting on a log sticking out of the pond. Then, as he got closer, Craig realized that the owl was stuck.
It turned out that the fishing line got into the wing of the bird.
As he slowly approached the bird, Craig felt very excited. But, to her surprise, she remained calm, as if she knew that the man just wanted to help her.
After Craig cut the line from the wing, the owl remained in place, apparently unable to fly after repeated and unsuccessful attempts to break free.
Craig then took a small shovel to carefully lift the animal and bring it to dry land. After a few seconds, the owl spread its wings and flew to freedom.
