Early this morning, while traveling down Route 2 in Athol, Trooper Matthew Cesvette was surprised by this owl as it flew into the side of his cruiser. He stopped to check on it. He then swaddled it in a blanket as it appeared stunned and not moving.
After bringing the owl to the Athol Barracks, he placed it into this container (Yes, there is access for air for breathing) and contacted the Environmental Police. The Environmental Police will be taking it today to have it checked for injuries before releasing it back into the wild.
