Police officer has most epic convo with tiny owl

Sometimes, what seems as though it's going to be just another day suddenly gets a sprinkling of magic. A slightly offbeat, unusual, or downright weird occurrence can bring the beauty out of the everyday. And what's even better is when these magical moments are captured on film, then shared online for the world to see!
Such is the latest cute video to go viral. In it, a police officer from Boulder, Colorado, was undergoing a fairly typical patrol - until they spotted something strange sitting in the middle of the road. They decided to take a closer look at the pedestrian, and what happened next was too adorable for words ...
It was a tiny little owl - or a baby Northern Saw-Whet, to be more scientific about it. With a fluffy, beige body and sleek brown head, it looked almost like a cuddly toy, but it was those big blinking green eyes that cemented its status as a star!
But, cute as it was, the middle of a road is just no place for an owl baby! The officers concluded it must have got lost, and made it their mission to rescue the little creature and return it to safer terrain.
The officer approached, gently asking, "Hey, what's up?" But the owl was clearly pretty shocked to see and hear a human so close and began widening its eyes and twisting its head about. It seriously looked as though the two were having a conversation!
There was a happy ending to the story, too. After their sweet interaction, the officer managed to convince the baby owl to move out of the middle of the road, and return to the safety of the trees.
"A tiny owl with a catlike face, oversized head, and bright yellow eyes, the Northern Saw-whet Owl is practically bursting with attitude. It has a very sophisticated hearing due to vertically asymmetrical ears and different shape of ear openings,” the police department explained. "These Owls hunt mainly at dusk and dawn and most often use the “sit and wait” tactic to drop down onto prey on the ground from low hunting perches. Maybe this little guy is trying to set a trap."
The video, uploaded to YouTube by the Boulder Country Sheriff's Department, quickly took the internet by storm. At the time of writing, it has nearly 8 million views. And what's even better than the video itself? Well, it has to be all of the hilarious comments!​
