ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) – This past Saturday, the Southwest Virginia Wildlife Center released a barred owl after spending several weeks rehabilitating an injury.

Several weeks ago, the owl was found hanging upside down over the Dan River in Danville and was entangled in fishing line.

Nearly two months after the rescue, rehabilitating injuries including a lacerated leg, the owl was released back into the wild near where it was rescued.

The video of the release is from the Southwest Virginia Wildlife Center.
