Eric Lind was just going about his normal day on October 13 when he spotted a great horned owl flying around his parents’ Eureka, Illinois neighborhood.

The owl was flying around, carrying something by its claws, which made it look like a witch flying through the sky on a broomstick.

He Took A Photo


Eric snapped a photo of the owl and shared it on social media, which also made other people wonder what the bird could have been holding.

It’s A Horse


Eric and his family spotted the owl and realized that the bird was carrying a stick horse. Some people figured that the owl might have stolen it because the horse’s head looked like fuzzy prey.

Talk To The Owl

Eric composed a goofy caption for the video and photo of the owl, saying “if your child is missing their stick horse, you’ll have to talk to the owl!”

Local Owl Family


Eric clarified that “this owl is part of a family of owls that have been in the neighborhood for about 6 months now, and this is one of the young owls.”

He’s Fine

He also made it clear that the owl was safe. He said, “For those of you questioning if the owl is hurt or ‘entangled’ in the stick horse… we have no reason to believe this is the case as we witnessed the owl moving the horse around and even changing its grip on it at one point… if someone sees that the owl is in danger or believes it is hurt, I’m sure the proper authorities would be contacted.”
