Here’s a feel-good story.

WMUR-TV reports that Hampton, a snowy owl, was released back into the wild this week after spending months recuperating and rehabilitating. Hampton was found injured on the side of Route 101 early last month. Hampton had lead poisoning, a hairline fracture in her wing and trauma to her head and thoracic spine, according to WMUR.

A crowd of people turned out to give her a proper send-off and to celebrate her release.

Fly, Hampton, fly!
