FORT WORTH, TX (CNN) - There have been plenty of videos recently of humans and wildlife in the wrong place at the wrong time, but you've probably never seen one quite like this.

Colton Wright says his cat dragged an live owl into his house.

The bird wasn't too seriously hurt, but it soon ended up stuck in the window and later flapping around the living room.

After calming his nerves a bit, Wright showed off his professional raptor-handling skills and coaxed the owl onto a floor sweeper.

The bird gave him a bit of a death stare as Wright gently moved it out an open window, and it then flew away - much to Wright's relief.

He says the entire ordeal lasted 40 minutes.
