Nesting dove takes Texas police cruiser out of service

UPI News Service, 04/14/2017 

A Texas police department is abiding by a local ordinance and taking a patrol vehicle out of service so a mother dove can nest in peace.

The Pearland Police Department said unit 187, a police patrol SUV, is being taken out of service for at least the next few weeks after a mother mourning dove built her nest at the base of the windshield and laid some eggs.

The department said moving or disturbing the nest would be a violation of the city's bird sanctuary ordinance, which makes it illegal to "ensnare or otherwise catch" wild birds within the city limits.

The police department said the eggs are expected to hatch in about a week, and the babies will remain in the nest for another four weeks after that.

The department said the SUV will remain out of service while police are "patiently waiting for mamma bird to have her eggs hatch and the little ones to fly the coop."
