An Ohio police cruiser won’t be racing to crime scenes any time soon — it’s been turned into a nursery for the mourning dove and her chicks that hatched in a nest there.
The dove, named Gerty, built a nest below the windshield wiper of a back-up cruiser for the Parma Police Department.
Praise has been pouring in from around the world for the cops on the bird beat.
“I think that’s the cutest thing I’ve seen in my entire week. Thank you for your kindness, from France!” Léa Vallée posted on the department’s Facebook page.
“These cops rock!!! thanks for doing this!” Linda Taylor Woods wrote.
Lt. Kevin Riley says it’s all in the line of duty for the department’s officers.
“We care for all lives, human or animal,” Lt. Riley told WJW News.
