A group in Wisconsin, called Raptor Education Group is right now trying to save a Loon with two chicks from such a death. Check out their facebook posts and photos. Please dispose of fishing line and tackle safely and clean it up if you find it. As well, fish far away from Loons as they may mistake your lure for a real fish.
