A merlin falcon tangled in the wires of an antenna tower was rescued Friday by Saskatoon Fire Department crews.
At around 11:20 a.m. CT, the fire department received a call about the bird at the Saskatoon Transit building at 315 Ave. C N.
It had been hanging upside down since the previous day.
Using the department’s 100-foot ladder truck, along with the help from wildlife rescue personnel, firefighters freed and released the falcon within an hour.
