Rescued Barn Owl released to wild

Tacoma Firefighters were on hand yesterday to watch the release of a recently rescued Barn Owl.  The adult male owl has been recuperating at the Sarvey Wildlife Care Center, (Arlington, Washington) for injuries sustained while ensnared in old fishing line left dangling from a tree on the banks of the Puyallup River.   After four weeks of convalescence, the fully recovered owl was released near the river at dusk last night.
