Loon Rescued in Maple Grove 20 Jul 18

A loon was tangled in a fishing line on Eagle Lake in Maple Grove on Wednesday until helpful boaters freed it. According to KSTP Chris Nagel, a friend and family members spotted the loon Wednesday night on Eagle Lake caught in a fishing line. A Department of Natural Resources employee who lives on the lake told neighbors to look out for the loon. Nagel scooped the loon with a net and removed the fishing line wrapped around the loon’s leg.
