LANE COUNTY, Kan. (KAKE) - A sheriff's office in western Kansas helped a game warden save an injured snowy owl on Sunday.

The Lane County sheriff's Office says they assisted in safely capturing the first snowy owl ever recorded in Lane County and taking it to a rehad center where it will be treated for its injuries.

The nonprofit, Carrie's Rehab Critters has begun treating the owl who they say is emaciated and dehydrated. 

In a Facebook post, Carrie Newell  says the game warden had to crawl under barbed wire and chase after the snowy owl before they were able to capture it.
