Boulder County Sheriff's Office

A routine patrol turned dangerously cute over the weekend after two police deputies encountered a baby owl defiantly blocking the road in Boulder County, Colorado.

Camera rolling, one of the deputies approached the baby northern saw-whet owl in an attempt to clear the roadway. The resulting 27 seconds of cuteness captivated the world, spreading like wildlife and garnering more than 2 million views:

But what became of the baby owl after the camera stopped rolling? "After some curious head twisting (on both sides) it safely flew away," the department said in a statement.
