Great blue heron

This great blue heron was found at Camp Ashland with fishing line tangled around one leg and both wings. It was found in the water and would have struggled until it died if people hadn’t found it and called Nebraska Wildlife Rehab Inc. The heron had lacerations and was weak and in shock and received treatment for about 10 days before being released.
