CALEDONIA — Officials with the Wisconsin Humane Society’s Wildlife Rehabilitation Center are caring for an owl who got himself into quite the predicament!

According to WHS officials, Lionel, who is a Great Horned Owl, was found Friday, August 4th by a “very caring, determined person” who was able to rescue him from a volleyball net in Caledonia, and bring him to the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center for treatment.
