Owl rescued by Ely couple

A Great Horned Owl with a broken wing was captured and brought to a rehabilitation center by an Ely couple.
Lexy Worth and Casey Fenske noticed ravens circling in the woods near the house off Highway 21. Fenske went out to see what the ravens were circling and found the owl.
Worth brought her camera and Fenske brought a fishing net to rescue the owl which could not fly.
With some definite bravery on Fenske’s part, the large bird was captured and later transported to a rehabilitation center.
“If all goes as planned to be released back on our property,” Worth wrote on FaceBook. “This was once in a lifetime. We’re so thrilled to have been able to save it!”
