Saginaw Police - Sgt. Mark Scott Rescues Screech Owl During Shift Patrol

Sandy Miner a volunteer with the Wild Life Support Team stopped by the Saginaw Police Station to express her gratitude about Sgt. Scott’s rescue of a Screech Owl. Ms. Miner said that two nights ago Sgt. Scott was working down in the south east side of the city when he came across a fledgling owl in the roadway. He scooted the owl away from the road so that it wouldn’t become road kill, only to come back and find it in the roadway again the next night. Sgt. Scott contacted 911, who then contact Ms. Miner’s organization and they sent her out to help the bird. Ms. Miner said “I think it’s important for people to understand that police officers are compassionate too. Sgt. Scott didn’t have to stop. This owl would have died if Sgt. Scott had not come to the rescue. It hasn’t been eating and that’s why it couldn’t fly away.”

Ms. Miner stated that the Wild Life Support Team has been in operation for 33 years. The Team has a facility to house and help the animals they rescue but it is not open to the public. They do not rescue mammals. Ms. Miner specializes in the rescue of big birds and is state and federally certified to do so.
