This is the moment a farmer rescues a hawk that had got stuck in a barbed wire fence.

The footage, captured on February 8 in Oregon, shows a man cutting the hawk free from the wire using a pair of pliers.

The man gently poses the hawk on the ground and the bird eventually flies away.

The filmer writes: ''We were in the kitchen when Matt happened to notice the chickens scattering in panic around their coop.

''When I went out to investigate I saw the hawk struggling in the fence.

''It was a totally random thing and we were thrilled to be able to free such a beautiful creature.

''Even our cows, chickens and goats were cheering as the hawk flew free.''
