“Shazam was very friendly and was easily handled by ACO Bliss and Officer Matt MacKenzie,” the department wrote on Facebook. “The owl was a bit lethargic so it was transported to the wildlife rehab ‘On The Wing’ in Epping, N.H. for evaluation. Good luck Shazam, we hope you heal well!”

Needless to say, the police department found the whole thing a big “hoot.”
