Squirrels Harass Owl In Buffalo Grove - Neighbor Calls Police
BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. (STNG) ― If you thought Buffalo Grove was just another quiet village, think again. Nights in this northwest suburb can get pretty wild.

At about 2:55 a.m. Wednesday, police were called to the 300 block of Willow Parkway when a resident reported an unusual noise in her back yard, according to a report from Buffalo Grove police.

Investigating officers found that two squirrels were harassing an owl and causing the ruckus. No injuries or arrests were reported.

  1. Ah, where was this kind soul when Kitty Genovese gasped her last?
  2. Call police on squirrel gangs? Nah. Send Mike Huckabee after them with a popcorn popper. [YouTube link]
  3. Note to owl: wings. Use 'em.
