Minn. cop snaps picture of owl resting on his patrol car

The officer thought the owl was injured until it perched itself on the hood of his patrol car

DULUTH, Minn. — From saving bald eagles to roping steer, animals help break up what can sometimes be a monotonous life on the beat.

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.
