DNR rescues a hawk caught in a fishing line from a tree

RAPID RIVER, Mich. (WNEM) – DNR, in partnership with a local business owner, rescued a hawk stuck in a tree.

Earlier this week, Conservation Officer Stephen Butzin received a call about a bird stuck in a tree, according to the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.

When Butzin arrived at the scene, he discovered a hawk had caught on a fishing line and was stuck in a treetop 50 feet above the ground.

Lacking the necessary equipment for this obstacle course, Butzin enlisted the help of Ryan Lindbert, a local business owner. Lindbert brought a lift to the scene and with the help of DNR wildlife technician Colton Lubben, the hawk was rescued from the tree and freed from the fishing line.

The animal has been released in good health and is expected to make a full recovery, according to the DNR.
