"2:18 p.m. Police were called to an animal complaint at Whistler and Walton Creek roads. An injured bird in a box was given to an officer, who took it to a veterinarian."

. Okay, calling the police to give the responding officer an injured bird in a box?

What part of that made it appear like it needed to become police business? .

The bird was assaulted. This is clearly a police issue.

At least there was no mention of the bird being in possession of any cannabis. I believe then that standard operating procedure is to put the animal down immediately.

If it was drunk, it probably got a courtesy ride home.

hereandthere, It was taken to the hospital. It could have been so impaired it couldn't show the officers where it resides.

I heard the bird sang in the Routt county jail and got his a** kicked by the Ellifritz kid.

Good one Rhys!

If only the bird happened to be on a bicycle then we would have had a REAL news story here. Then the bird would have had a mural, or maybe some legislation, or an ordinance, or some sort of charity fund set up in it's honor. Wait....I've got it...we honor the bird by renaming the town "Give The Police a Bird Town U.S.A.!!!" .

hwystar-HA! The current local gossip is that the poor bird was on a bike. Two aBreast and was hit from an F-150 Mega cab who just got plain tired of flying along at 3.6 MPH. And yes the poor bird was under the influence of tainted seeds... he/she flew into something and a concerned citizen called when he/she was observed he/she urinating on the spot (the bird, not the citizen). Cops were called and they tried to mediate the situation. ONLY to realize that the bird in question was also wanted on a "failure to appear" for going #2 on a statue in Lincoln. At this point the cops could not locate the subject and a very observant citizen apprehended the subject in the alledged "box" and turned custody over to the cops. He/she was then taken to YVMC for treatment which didn't go well as he/she was a bird...the officers then took the individual to a Vet clinic. His/her current whereabouts or conditions are currently unknown.

LOL hwy!!! Dont inconvienence yourself! A VERY long time ago, I read a book about Helen Keller, I was like in second grade. Yes a VERY long time ago, (maybe at that time 4th grade level...) At the end of the book there were many illustrations of simple "hand signs" that were acceptable. One of them was a MAJOR BIRD! And it translated to " love you". I had just found the older neighborhood boys' stash of Playboys and Hustlers....my world had just opened to things OTHER than what Mama had always taught me. We were NOT allowed a TV at that point, and every night for about a week when Mama asked me what I had learned from "my book" I had to lie and was punished for saying, "NOTHING". Wear gloves Darn It!!! LOL!

exduffer, Now the bird will be in "lock down" until the DA can walk "next door" and get the evidence to free the bird. The birds life could expire before that happens. Rhys, Do you have any experience in "lock down"?

Actually, I heard the bird was taken to the hospital, but was determined to be crazy as a loon and released.

I wanted to be a bird in my next life, but now they're even turning those in. Is no one safe these days? Was it a "no-fly" zone? Was it posted? Can birds read? This all sounds rather flighty to me. Perhaps that bird would have been safer in a mitten too, where it could not be readily seen. Looks like a friendly wave, not a nasty bird. Cops don't like birds, is the conclusion I've reached. Some shoot 'em. Vets just eat them. They don't care. Who really does? We should organize a group, to go check on our bird's welfare. Who else would? Certainly not the family. It's our job -- SAVE THE BIRD!!
