LAKE COUNTY - Early Saturday morning, a Lake County sheriff's deputy and his partner were driving along Highway 93 just south of Saint Ignatius when they heard a thump on the passenger side of their vehicle.
They turned their patrol car around to investigate and found a small owl who was apparently chasing his breakfast when he ran into the moving car.
The deputy picked up the bird to see if his wing was broken.
When he tried to put the owl down, it clung to him. After about five minutes the bird seemed to recover and flew away, apparently none worse for the wear by the incident.
