There was a standoff recently in Boulder County, Colorado. The standoff was between county sheriffs and a tiny owl. Yes a Northern Saw-whet owl.
A fierce showdown between Boulder County deputies and a teeny owl on Thursday ended in thousands of “aww”s after a photo of the standoff went viral on Twitter.
The Colorado deputies were driving along a road near an undisclosed campground when they came across this fluffy beast known as the Northern Saw-whet Owl.
Good thing the owl wasn’t black. Just sayin’.
