Look what the cat dragged in! Owl video’s a hoot

FORT WORTH, Texas (CNN/COLTON WRIGHT) — We’ve seen plenty of videos recently of humans and wildlife in the wrong place at the wrong time, but you’ve probably never seen one quite like this.

Maybe this guy should have called a professional owl catcher!

Colton Wright says his cat dragged an owl into his house.

The bird wasn’t too seriously hurt but soon ended up stuck in the window — and then later flapping around the living room.

After calming his nerves a bit, Colton showed off his professional raptor-handling skills and coaxed Mr. Owl onto a floor sweeper.

The bird gave him a bit of a death stare as Colton gently moved it out an open window, and it then flew away — much to Colton’s relief.

He says the entire ordeal lasted 40 minutes, and it was enough to get his video on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 “Ridicu-List” on Monday.
