Getting stuck on Highway 101 is definitely something to hoot about.
That's what one owl learned last Friday when it was apparently hit by a vehicle and found itself injured near the center divider of the California highway, The Press Democrat reports.
California Highway Patrolman Justin Fetterly responded to the call about the barn owl, and when he arrived at the scene, he cornered the bird with fellow officer Brian Wood. Fetterly used an emergency blanket to scoop up the bird and then drove with it in his lap to a nearby emergency animal hospital in Santa Rosa.
