I want to personally thank the Delphos police officer that happened to be in the right place at the right time.

Recently, my granddaughter, Anna Fitch, and two of her girlfriends were taking a bike ride along Pierce Street here in Delphos. As they were riding, they came upon a baby owl lying on the sidewalk. They went over to the owl and it opened its eyes and appeared to be hurt. They didn’t know what to do. About that time, a Delphos police officer drove by and the girls flagged the officer down. He stopped his car and got out to see what was wrong. The girls explained the owl looked hurt and the officer told them it looks like the owl has a broken wing. He went over to his car, got a box out and picked up the owl, very carefully, and placed the owl in the box. He took the box, with the owl and put it in the police car. He assured the girls he would take care of the owl and drove away.

The officer is a hero to those girls. We are always hearing bad things and this is one of the nicest stories I have heard in a long time. I have always told our children and grandchildren, if you need help ask a police officer and they will help you no matter what the situation.

We don’t know the officer’s name, but whoever he is; he did a good deed that day. God Bless the Delphos Police Department for caring and keeping our town safe.

Thank you,

Beverly Derrow
