Northern Kentucky Tree Service workers rescue large bird trapped in tree for days

Two northern Kentucky tree trimmers rescued a bird that had been stuck in a large tree for days. It happened last week in Ft. Mitchell. “Anytime we get a weird call like this, if we can handle it, we’re on it,” said Tiler Wright, who works for Clark Tree Service in Edgewood. He and his boss Preston Clark seem to have a knack for animal rescues. “We saved a few cats, saved a drone,” Wright said. “Squirrels too,” Clark added. They were through the day on Thursday when they received a call to help rescue a bird stuck in a tree for six days on Orphanage Road in Ft. Mitchell. Wright, nicknamed “Cowboy,” said a black vulture was about 70 feet from a 100-foot tree. the bird is entangled in the limb,” Wright explained. He managed to free the bird. Clark and someone from the local animal shelter rushed to the ground to capture him. “We were getting multiple calls from multiple people. Everyone was trying to come up with a way, a plan to get this bird out of this tree,” said Cindy Alverson, executive director of RAPTOR, Inc. in Milford. “They went the extra mile. They had never handled a bird before. So I was a bit concerned, like it was a vulture, and I didn’t know what state it was in, but they are very fiery.” for the Regional Association for the Protection and Treatment of Raptors, which is a non-profit organization that rehabilitates injured birds of prey. It is the only such group north of Louisville and south of the Dayton area. “This bird was extremely lucky. Every day it was becoming more and more critical,” Alverson said. “We have to hand-feed him at this point. But he’s on his feet, which is monumental upside down for six days.” The rescue organization is most concerned about the bird’s left wing. The ultimate goal is to rehabilitate it and release it back into the wild. “We’re here to help everyone. Bottom line,” Clark said. “Here to serve the community in any way we can. Even if it gets a little hairy, we’re in it,” Wright said.

Wright, nicknamed “Cowboy,” said a black vulture was about 70 feet from a 100-foot tree.

“So my first instinct was to climb to the top of the tree, tie it high, come down and figure out how the bird is tangled in the limb,” Wright explained.

He managed to free the bird. Clark and someone from the local animal shelter rushed to the ground to capture him.
