Video captures owl trying to snatch fisherman's bait

KXAN - An owl got more than it expected when it tried to snatch a fisherman's lure Saturday morning.

Garry Olson Jr., the man who recorded the video was fishing at Lady Bird Lake in Austin, Texas early Saturday morning when the owl swooped down and snatched his lure out of the water, which then caught on to its talon causing it to fall into the water.

After realizing what had happened, Garry paddled his kayak to the owl, giving it a dry harbor to rest on while Animal Control was called.

The owl sat on Garry's GoPro camera for more than an hour as the two waited for help to arrive.
