Erie Co. Sheriff's Deputy Saves Owl.
This morning around 11:30, the Sheriff's Office received a call about an owl entangled in a soccer goal net at Veteran's Park in Grand Island. Deputy Kopacz arrived and freed the raptor from the netting. After a brief "once-over" the Deputy launched the bird and it quickly flew away looking no worse for the encounter. Good job Deputy and thanks for giving a hoot. (sorry, but the pun was unavoidable).
