Duluth Officer Richard LeDoux was on patrol when a citizen flagged him down to report an injured owl, the Duluth News Tribune reported.
The person originally thought the bird had been hit by a car, but when LeDoux approached, the owl jumped up onto the hood of the patrol car.
As the owl stared at the officer through the windshield, LeDoux snapped a picture that a colleague then posted on Twitter.
“It was there maybe a minute or so. It didn’t seem to be in any hurry,” LeDoux said.
This owl flew onto the hood of a squad car, after the officer was flagged down to check on it in the road. Happy to report it flew away! pic.twitter.com/Brmjnpyxmx— K-9 Officer Hurst (@DuluthPD_S18) February 8, 2017
