Dec. 4 (UPI) -- A Minnesota family rescued a barred owl they discovered stuck on a barbed wire fence and drove the bird to a rehab center.

A video captured Thursday in Biwabik Township shows Luke Soderling covering the owl with towels and cutting it free from the fence with help from his wife and their four children.


''The owl got tangled by its wing in the fence and I had to cut the wire to remove it,'' Soderling wrote. ''It was tangled so badly it couldn't be freed any other way."

Soderling then loaded the owl, swaddled in towels, into his car and drove it one hour to a rehab center while his children kept an eye on it in the back seat.
