Police are supposed to stand up for the little guys and when a citizen spotted this little spotted wonder getting the worst of a birds vs. owl confrontation in the parking lot outside their headquarters Walnut Creek’s finest intervened.
Feeling a little hen-pecked but suffering no other apparent injuries that they could see, the owl was boxed up and officers took him? (how do you sex an owl, by the way?) to the good folks at the Alexander Lindsay Museum where it is getting a little quiet time and a check-up before being released in a – hopefully – more receptive environment where the gophers are fat and dumb and the voles are slow.
Okay? For those of you who say we’re only doing hard news around NEWS24-680, there’s your awww story for the day.
