Lure-Hooked Owl Gets Help from Angler on Austin’s Lady Bird Lake [VIDEO]

While fishing for bass in downtown Austin, Texas, you apparently need to look out for owls.

Angler Garry Olson, Jr. was kayak fishing on Austin’s Lady Bird Lake when his lure was smashed by an unexpected creature.

Thanks to Garry’s GoPro camera, which served as a perch for the owl, this great video footage was able to be captured.

Animal Control arrived after about an hour, and they were able to release the lure’s hook from the bird’s talon.
