Video sent to 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS shows a thankful loon after some helpful boaters got it loose from a fishing line.
Chris Nagel provided the video, and said he, his friend John Tilford, and family members spotted the loon Wednesday night on Eagle Lake in Maple Grove and decided to help free it.
A Department of Natural Resources employee who lives on the lake told neighbors to look out for the loon.
Nagel scooped up the loon with a net and removed the fishing line, which was wrapped around the loon's leg.
Make sure to watch the video above until the end to see the loon's grateful response.
