VIDEO: Owl gets caught on fisherman’s line

AUSTIN (KXAN) — An owl got more than it expected when it tried to snatch a fisherman’s lure Saturday morning.

Garry, the man who recorded the video was fishing at Lady Bird Lake early Saturday morning when the owl swooped down and snatched his lure out of the water, which then caught on to its talon causing it to fall into the water.

After realizing what had happened, Garry paddled his kayak to the owl giving it a dry harbor to rest on while Animal Control was called.

The owl sat on Garry’s GoPro camera for more than an hour as the two waited for help to arrive.

Once Animal Control crews arrived they were able to safely detach the lure and release the owl back into the wild.
