Massachusetts State Police make another rescue of an injured animal on the highway



Massachusetts State Police have been making it a habit lately of rescuing animals on the state’s highways.

According to Massachusetts State Police, while commuting back from his assignment at the Massachusetts State Police Marine Unit in Boston recently, Trooper Samuel Muto observed an injured Great Horned Owl on Route 67 in West Brookfield.

The owl appeared to have a broken wing and after resisting briefly, he was bundled into custody in a State Police jacket and transported to the State Police-Brookfield Barracks where the owl looked none to happy to have his photo taken with Trooper Muto.

The owl was “held” in Cell #1 until Environmental Police Officers took it to Tufts Animal Hospital for treatment.

This month, a Massachusetts State Trooper came to the rescue of an injured hawk located on a highway.

Also this month, a Massachusetts State Trooper channeled his inner Tyquan Thornton to capture a fawn after finishing his shift.
