Roys dad "finds" the evidence that they cannot build it
They have the kids from the school come and support saving the owls by protesting against the building of the Mother Paula's pancake house. After they start to speak, they see mullet fingers in one of the small owl burrows and the guy tells him to get out but he refuses. Then the speaker tries to have officer Delinko arrest him for trespassing but that means he would have to kick evrybody off. So he takes it into his own hands by going after him with a shovel.
When the guy starts to come after mullet fingers, Roy and Beatrice stand up for him by standing in front of mullet fingers. Then after everyone else sees them they join making a wall around mullet fingers. After he gets outraged he tells everyone to move but they don't and stand their ground.
Roys dad is part of the police department as a detective and so he heard about the owls and how they are going to build over the burrows. So he goes to the court documents and he looked for the documents to see if they had permission to build over the burrows. He doesn't find them and now the owls are saved and they are not going to build Mother Paula's on those grounds and everything is better and normal.
