Diaoxiao looks like an owl, inhabits mountain forests and feeds on rodents.
In the past, Diaoxiao has been widely distributed throughout the country. Since the past few years, the number of Diaoxiao has decreased sharply due to the widespread use of seeds of toxic film to prevent birds and rats from eating. It is rarely seen in the wild now and has been listed as a national second-level key protected animal.
On February 18th, the Ma’er Police Station of Xi’an Public Security Branch rescued a state-level protected animal Bubo and transferred it to the forest public security organ for release.
On the morning of the same day, the police station received an alarm from the staff of the Miao Liu Village Epidemic Prevention and Control Checkpoint in the jurisdiction to report that a large owl-like bird hit the baffle of the checkpoint during the flight, and was knocked out on the spot.
After receiving the police, the police immediately rushed to the scene to take the large bird back to the house for disposal. Later, through online inquiry and comparison, the police found that the bird was very similar to the national second-level protected animal Diaoxiao. So they fed it with water and food, at the same time, they immediately contacted the forest public security organs.
In the end, the staff of the forestry public security organ confirmed that the bird was indeed a national second-level protected animal Diaoxiao. (Written in Chinese: 雕枭)
