March 5, 2019 – Jackson, WI – An interesting night at the Jackson Police Department as Officer Brinks was in charge of watching over a screech owl. The bird was hit by a Washington County Taxi and brought to the Jackson PD.
Officer Brinks kept watch over the owl overnight and made sure it was comfortable until they could contact Marty at Wanakia Wildlife.
Marty picked up the owl Tuesday morning and said it suffered a concussion but should be ok.
The owl spent the night in a holding cell in case it started to feel better and tried to fly the coop.
