GRAND ISLAND, NY-- An Erie County Sheriff's deputy had to make a rather strange rescue Tuesday morning on Grand Island.

The sheriff's office says Deputy Angela Kopacz got the call for an owl tangled in a soccer goal net at Veteran's Park.

She was able to get it free and send it off no worse for the wear.
