BOKEELIA, Fla.- An osprey stuck upside down in a tree for more than 24 hours was rescued.
Gail Lee discovered the bird in the tree behind her home on Tuesday.
“It is hard to watch and your mind starts thinking what can I do? Should I get a long pole and try to poke him outta there? but I think it’s too dangerous, it’s just too high,” said Lee.
The osprey had a type of wire wrapped around its foot and that’s what caused it to get tangled up in the tree more than 50 feet high.
An employee with Genesis Tree Service was able to climb the tree and free the bird.
The osprey is now being taken to the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW).
