Drunk owl taken into police custody

For some reason all I can picture is an owl being wrestled to the ground by three officers while he screams he used to be on TV, and they'd better not litter.

From Der Spiegel:

An owl that had evidently drunk too much Schnapps from two discarded bottles was so inebriated that it got picked up by police. The bird will be released once it has sobered up...

..."It wasn't staggering around and we didn't breathalyze it but there were two little bottles of Schapps in the immediate vicinity," said Otruba. "We took it to a local bird expert who has treated alcoholized birds before and she has been giving it lots of water."
