FIREFIGHTERS have today (Friday, December 9, 2016) rescued a barn owl who found herself entangled in a tree in Royton.
At around 11.20am firefighters were sent to Charles Street to help RSPCA officers to gain access to Mazi, who had been stranded in the tree overnight.
Watch Manager Pete Marshall, Chadderton Community Fire Station, said: “We used a ladder to reach the part of the tree where the owl was entangled, before sawing away the branches to release her.”
Mazi was reunited with her grateful owner.
