LONG ISLAND (WABC) -- Two Suffolk County Police officers rescued a wounded owl on the side of the Long Island Expressway Wednesday morning.
The owl was found on the side of the road near exit 65.
The owl's eyes were dilated and the bird was showing signs of trauma.
The officers placed a raincoat over the owl to settle it down and then were able to grab its talons and control the animal.
