In Long Island, an injured egret had been stranded on a front lawn in a residential neighborhood when the Suffolk County police came to his rescue. The heron with his white feathers and impressive wing span had been spotted in the early evening on Monday in the yard of a West Babylon home on West Ninth Street.
According to the New York Post, officers were able to use a pool skimmer to capture it and then carefully settled him into a recycling bin.
The bird was taken to a nearby veterinarian where he will be treated and be returned to the wild once he has recovered.
Many thanks to our men and women in blue who care about our wildlife too.
