This is a clip from a Sunday match between Junior Barranquilla and Deportivo Pereira of Colombia's Primara A. The owl, which is apparently Junior's club pet, made it on to the field in the middle of play and Pereira defender Luis Moreno swiftly booted it three meters off the field. Moreno hasn't been charged yet or punished by the league, but he told press after the game that he did it "to see if the owl could fly." Junior's bird is reportedly recovering from "traumatic stress" in a Barranquilla veterinary clinic.
