NAPA (KRON)– A feathered friend got a helping hand from a CHP officer Friday.
Officer Ray was flagged down by a driver on SR 221 near Napa Corporate Drive.
The driver told the officer that he saw an owl that was unable to fly and was concerned for its safety.
The driver had placed the owl in his truck to keep him safe and was hoping the officer could help.
Officer Ray retrieved the owl and noticed that it was small, and probably too young to fly.
The officer put brought the owl back to the CHP and placed it in a crate.
It was then taken to the Silverado Veterinary Hospital where it is receiving the care it needs until it is big enough to be returned to the wild.
