(Newsletter Readers click the TITLE for video page) "WINGS RESCUE CENTER received a call on a great blue heron that had been found in the water completely entangled in fishing line. Fortunately this caller had experience with bird rescues. Dave Barnett, Dave Angeli and Ashlynn LeBlanc found the heron nearly dead in the water. They removed all of the fishing line from the heron and called us. Susan Lewis was called to rescue the heron, although it was very clear there were many rescuers that day. Susan transported the heron to Amanda Terry with Texas Sealife Center for care. Amazingly enough, the heron completely recovered and was released at Rockport Beach yesterday. Thank you to all involved with this incredible rescue. Many of our birds are injured or killed from fishing line and tackle. Please fish responsibly by properly disposing of excess line and tackle. Thank you!"
