Owl saved after being trapped in soccer net at Benilde-St. Margaret's

One great horned owl had a tough morning, but thanks to the staff at Benilde-St. Margaret's in St. Louis Park, it's free to fly. 

On Wednesday morning, a member from the Catholic school's facility department found an owl that had been tangled in a soccer net. 


A science teacher and a physical education teacher at the school were able to use their expertise in ecology and knowledge of the soccer nets to untangle the bird.
