This Snowy Owl was snared by the double treble-hooks of a fishing lure. In her struggles, she got both feet and her beak entangled in the hooks. The owl was rescued on the Lake Erie shore just west of Port Clinton, Ohio. About one month later, she was released after a successful rehabilitation. More about this particular episode is available on a separate page.
This goose was shot by a dart which was found impaled in her head. The dart is circled in red in the large photo.
This Screech Owl was entangled in an old, discarded volleyball net.
This Cormorant had swallowed a fishing hook and metal leader. The metal leader ended up protruding back out of the bird's neck. This picture is an X-ray of the bird's neck showing the hook (circled in red) and the metal leader.
This Canadian Goose's leg and foot were seriously maimed by a length of nylon fishing line (barely visible around one of Mona's fingers).
