    WARWICK, RI — Warwick Firefighters rescued a barred owl with one wing tangled in a spool of fishing line that was hanging from a tree at 1:40 p.m. at 77 Royal Ave. Wednesday, entrusting it to the care of Wildlife Rehabilitators of RI.

    Firefighters called in the Warwick Police Animal Control officers for advice, learning that the owls have sharp talons and beaks. Animal Control officers Amy Violett, Heather Razza and Eric Brewster advised as two firefighters climbed a ladder extended horizontal below the branches the own was hanging from. One firefighter, equipped with a heavy blanket, wrapped the owl safely in it so they could cut the bird of prey loose.

    “The owl was rescued and transported to Wildlife Rehabilitators of RI–thanks to Arianna Mouradjan for the distressed animal notification and taken the bird in for evaluation,” Warwick Police wrote on their Facebook page. Warwick Police also posted video of the rescue in action on their page.

    “The owl will be test-flighted this week. WFD did an amazing job rescuing the owl (with a little coaxing 😂) and he was safely transported!” Violet commented on the WPD Facebook page.
