Photo Challenge Wednesday: Saving ‘hoot’

My mom had to rush into action to save a young owl from tangled threads that someone carelessly disposed ofΒ in the nearby river. The poor creature had been crying its lungs off because it couldn’t fly and it was way past its bedtime given that it was almost eight in the morning. Mom sat for a while trying to get the threads off. I love her for this selfless act.Β 

I couldn’t get a good picture of the little one (and this is the only one I took), but this will do…


It flew off as soon as the threads were off its legs.Β
