The brave policeman saved the bird.
A perched owl was recently spotted amid a busy suburban motorway early one morning. Automobiles sped past the bird. Hurt, the owl was unable to fly.
Numerous individuals began contacting the police to report the owl. A Maryland Natural Resources Enforcement Officer named Michael Latrum arrived at the owl’s location by chance. Latrum also had previous expertise with birds, which was another factor in his decision to start this firm.
The policeman immediately understood what to do when he saw an owl sitting in the middle of the road. He carefully approached the bird while taking off his jacket, and then rapidly tossed it over it and wrapped the owl in it. He first covered the owl’s head to quiet her down in the dark, then he covered the bird’s legs to protect him from the owl’s razor-sharp claws.
Latrum placed the subdued bird on the seat adjacent to the driver’s seat after carrying it into his automobile. When the owl understood that Latrum was not harmful, it gave up fighting. The bird seemed astonished and puzzled as she glanced around her; she was still in a state of shock and bewilderment, but she exhibited no symptoms of violence.
The man appears to have been certain that the bird would not scratch since, as you can see in the photo, he did not even put on a glove. She didn’t try to free herself and fight the man. Only after Latrum handed the owl to another person did the bird begin to quiver and scratch its fingers.
If the courageous policeman hadn’t intervened, irresponsible motorists would have tossed the owl beneath the vehicle.
The owl was delivered to the wild animal shelter by the policeman. The team at Frisky’s Wildlife and Primate Sanctuary inspected the bird and discovered no severe wounds. Soon after recovering, the owl will be returned to its natural habitat.
