The deputy wrapped up the bird in a sheet and took it to an area animal hospital.

The bird was later transported to a local owl rescue center, where officials will help nurse it back to health so it can fly again, the sheriff’s office said.

“The owl is expected to make a full recovery,” the sheriff’s office wrote on Facebook
