Drunk owl busted by cops

Pin it

Before there can be hungover owls, there must be drunk owls. That's what police in Germany, a country not unfamiliar with excessive partying, discovered when they apprehended a "paralytic owl that appeared to have drunk too much Schnapps." The allegedly boozy bird was just sitting by the side of the road when it was found by a woman walking her dog, which is how most Law & Order episodes begin, give or take an owl.

Concerned, she alerted the authorities. The police took the specimen to "a local bird expert who has treated alcoholized birds before," because, again, this is Germany, where even winged animals have a habit of getting "alcoholized." The owl is being given water and will be released once it sobers up.
