The Harris Hawk escaped and became trapped in a large tree 20 metres above the ground after the rope around its foot became entangled in the branches.

The owner called the Gloucestershire fire and rescue service who attended the scene in Moorend, Hartbury.

A specially trained rope rescue crew and the RSPCA released the uninjured bird, which is native to South America, and handed back to its grateful owner.
