GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) _ A great horned owl found tangled in kite string in a Grand Forks park last month is set to be released back into the wild.
The owl was being transported to Lincoln Park from St. Paul on Sunday afternoon. The owl was brought to the University of Minnesota's Raptor Center to recover from a strained wing.
It was found hanging upside down by cross-country skiers and was rescued in an effort led by local raptor expert Tim Driscoll.
Driscoll says the owl really wanted to fly, so doctors moved her to a flying enclosure and then an outdoor flying area. After a few of those flights, one of the center's experts made the call to have the owl moved back to Grand Forks.
