Loon rescued on Lake Bonaparte in Lewis County

Posted

LAKE BONAPARTE — An environmental conservation officer in Lewis County helped free a loon trapped by a lure and braided fishing line, according to the state Department of Environmental Conservation.

Officials said they were notified about a trapped loon on Lake Bonaparte on July 14. The person who called for help transported the officer across the lake to the opposite shoreline, where they spotted the struggling bird.

The loon was found to be bound with crank bait and several feet of braided fishing line. Officials said the fishing line was removed and the loon was released back onto the lake.
