Boulder County Sheriff’s Deputies were driving near a campground when they spotted something standing in the middle of the road. It wouldn’t move so they got out of the car to investigate what it was which resulted in the cutest standoff I’ve ever seen.
A baby Northern Saw Whet Owl seemed as curious about them as they were about them and it didn’t even feel threatened when they pulled out a camera to film it. After some adorable head twisting it must have figured out humans weren’t all that interesting after all and safely flew away. The video the deputies filmed is beyond cute. Watch.
