This curious, adorable baby owl in Boulder, Colorado doesn’t understand why cops are questioning him.
Police officers from Boulder County Sheriff’s Office were driving when they spotted a baby owl in the middle of the dirt road.
The cops got out to usher the northern saw whet owl out of the road for its own safety.
That’s when things got dangerously cute.
The cops stopped this baby owl on July 23 and the video has already received 3,502,014 views on YouTube.
Since the pictures have been posted on Facebook and shared multiple times, people have been falling in love with this adorably confused little owl.
Its look of defiance and way of posturing itself almost looks like it is ready to fight. But its fluffiness gives it away. Its not fooling anybody. Maybe in a few years it’ll be more frightening.
Boulder Police even created the hashtag #deputieslovebabyowls.
I guess the moral of the story is always carry around a baby owl to show to a cop when you get in trouble.
