PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - After more than a decade on the job, you'd think an animal control officer would have seen all the wildlife Pittsburgh has to offer. But one worker got a surprise on a call Wednesday.
Pittsburgh Public Safety said Animal Care and Control Officer Jeffrey Ley found a blue heron in the weeds at the Forestry Division on Stanton Avenue after he was called for an injured bird.
It's the first blue heron he's seen in his 11-year career, Public Safety said.
According to the National Audubon Society, the blue heron is the largest heron in North America and is usually seen along inland rivers or lakeshores.
Public Safety said the bird was taken to the Wildlife Center.
