Baby Owl Questioned In Owlbsolutely Adorable Police Encounter

Whoooooo's this shady character?  

A sheriff's deputy in Boulder County, Colorado, came across this suspicious baby owl last week. As you can see in the clip above, she proceeded to interrogate the little bird. 

After a brief and clearly tense standoff, it seemed clear the northern saw-whet owl was guilty of being owl-bsolutely owl-dorable.

One Twitter user asked if the owl revealed how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop.

"The owl wouldn't give anything up," the department wrote in response. 

They also wrote that the encounter took place near the Rainbow Lakes Campground in Nederland.

"After some curious head twisting (on both sides) it safely flew away," the agency wrote in its YouTube description.
