Last week, a family from Sarasota, Florida found the perfect Christmas tree and carted it home. Busy, they kept the tree around for five days before they finally decided to decorate it. As they adorned the branches with lights and baubles, they made a strange discovery.
Within their tree branches was, no - not a partridge in a pear tree. A screech owl.
Pelican Man's Bird Sanctuary sent out a team to retrieve the little guy. As they plucked him from the pine, a strange odor met the nostrils of the officers. Wacky terbacky*.
"Curiously enough, the owl's feathers smelled very, very potently like marijuana," said Jeff Dering, of the sanctuary. "They examined the owl, looked at its eyes, ... and the owl was, in the vernacular, stoned."
Blood tests confirmed the owl's drug state.
After giving "Cheech" the screech owl a full check up, it was determined that being up in smoke would not cause any permanent damage. Cheech also inadvertantly gave the staff at the sanctuary an early gift. The attention he garnered has brought in enough money ($250,000) to keep the sanctuary buzzing in the years to come.
