A man riding his bike in a Florida park stumbled upon something you don’t see every day: an owl stuck in the netting of a soccer goal.

When the owl wouldn’t let the man near him, the man, Randey Hubbard, got help from Polk County authorities.

“I wanted to make sure because they were mowing and stuff around it. I wanted to make sure they didn’t push the net or anything like that. I didn’t want it to get hurt,” Hubbard said

After a couple of hours, two biologists were dispatched to the park to properly free the bird. Once they were able to free it, it flew off into the wild.
