The weather was threatening so we didn't have much time. Since he wasn't cooperating, I used my net to reel him in. He was 10 feet away from me, and I found it difficult to hold his weight at that distance, especially with the awkward position I put myself in. He would not allow himself to fall all the way into the net, so I had to help him by prying his paws off the rim one by one. Given how scared he was, I was concerned that he would try to bite me as I grabbed his paws, but he didn't even appear to think about it. Once he was in the net, I brought him down just as the rain began to fall. He was quickly taken inside his house and released from the net to begin his recovery from yet another stressful rescue.
