MARTIN COUNTY, Fla. - The Martin County Sheriff's Office just answered a call for help.... from a blue heron!
According to the sheriff's office Facebook page, animal control officers saw the bird caught in a tree limb near Frazier Creek. They say the animal was obviously in great distress.
The only way to get to it was on the water, so animal control officer Michelle Thonney borrowed a paddle board, and made her way to the struggling creature.
She managed to free the blue heron from a ball of fishing line.
It's now being treated at the Treasure Coast Wildlife Center, and will hopefully soon return to its regular perch along Frazier Creek.
