ORLANDO, Fla. -- A hawk was rescued Wednesday after it became stuck in the netting at Top Golf in Orlando.

The red-tailed hawk was rescued by a team from SeaWorld and Orange County Fire Rescue crews.

According to fire rescue, the hawk was tangled in a net about 50 feet up at the driving range center on Universal Boulevard.

Two people in a platform lift worked to free the raptor. Then a crew on the ground assisted in getting the hawk into a carrier.
