August 4, Environmental Conservation Officer Matthew Rutherford responded to Craryville for reports of a Great Horned owl entangled in a net. Officer Rutherford carefully cut the net and released the owl. After observing the bird for several minutes after its release, the ECO determined the owl was suffering from injuries that needed further evaluation and brought the bird to the Friends of Feathered and Furry Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Hunter where it was treated for dehydration and an injured wing. The owl was released back into the wild after making a full recovery. Photo courtesy of DEC
