Paralytic Owl Taken into Custody

Police have taken an owl into custody after the bird was found drunk and sitting by the side of the road, oblivious to traffic.

German police said the “paralytic” owl appeared to have drunk too much Schnapps from two discarded bottles, according to reports.

“Officers quickly concluded that it had had one too many. One of its eyelids was drooping, adding to the general impression of inebriation,” the Spiegel Online reported.

The Brown Owl did not appear to be injured and is expected to be released once it is sober.

“A woman walking her dog alerted the police after seeing the bird sitting by the side of the road oblivious to passing traffic,” police spokesman Frank Otruba said.

“It wasn’t staggering around and we didn’t breathalyse it but there were two little bottles of Schnapps in the immediate vicinity.

“We took it to a local bird expert who has treated alcoholised birds before and she has been giving it lots of water.”
