Owl takes pride of place in Colombia v Venezuela
Keeper makes a ‘owler
If you have been watching Frozen Planet on the Beeb recently, you will be aware of some of the incredible footage of animals at extreme North and South of our planet.
However, it appears that a Colombian owl has got a touch jealous of its polar cousins, and decided to gain a degree of notoriety by landing on the crossbar of one of the goals in the Metropolitan Stadium whilst Colombia were playing Venezuela. The owl then proceeded to tuck into its dinner, a full-sized rat, whilst the game was continuing.
Still, after Colombian Luis Moreno had kicked an owl in the head earlier this season in the same country, the owl probably had the right idea in staying put.
The game ended 1-1, although the owl persisted in informing his family that the score was 2-8-2-0. Apologies.
