When Carneys Point resident Bob Moussally went outside to get the morning paper he probably didn't think he'd make the news for rescuing an injured owl. But that's exactly what happened Tuesday morning.

Moussally noticed the grey horned owl right outside his home. His son, saw it last night too. Moussally realized the poor owl couldn't fly correctly. It's eye was hurt and the owl needed help. What he did next would surprise a lot of people. Moussally sat with the bird for seven hours. He waited patiently with the owl all day long, keeping it safe until help arrived.

The owl was transported carefully to Cedar Run Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Medford, N.J. Doctors there will nurse the owl back to help, before releasing it back into the wild.
