JACKSON TOWNSHIP, Ohio -- The great horned owl that was rescued after being stuck in a kite was released back into the wild after being rehabilitated.

Firefighters in Jackson Township rescued the bird back in April.

The owl suffered an injury to its right wing and was being cared for at a wildlife rehab center.

The owl was flying fine at the center so it was time for it to be released back into the wild -- and that's exactly what happened Wednesday afternoon.
