On Circuit Street in Hanover, a couple flagged down police because something caught their attention on Saturday. Sitting on the side of the road was a small owl, who appears to have one eye.
Documenting the incident, the Hanover police tweeted that the Eastern Red Screech Owl was provided a safe space, took a trip down to the station, and was then transported to a sanctuary, following a call to the Duxbury Animal Control Officer.
The owl appears to be in good spirits after what was probably an adventurous day for the bird.

We provided him with a safe space, brought him to the station, and called Duxbury ACO. He was transported to a sanctuary. pic.twitter.com/dXC6kXtKMi
