As we inch closer to Halloween, people are getting ready with their spooky costumes and decorations. This season is absolutely wonderful with a chill in the air, warm drinks, family dinners and children dressed up in clever or scary costumes. Amid this eerie atmosphere, a great horned owl was caught on camera flying with what looked like a “broom” and resembling a witch riding a broomstick, to people’s amazement and fright.

According to Bored Panda, Eric Lind was spending time with his folks in Eureka, Illinois, when he looked up at the sky and was shocked. He recorded the mystical great horned owl on camera as it swooped across the sky carrying a child’s stick horse toy, similar to how the famous witch rides her broom. He told Newsweek, “My mom received a call from one of the neighbors telling her to look outside in the backyard at our pine tree. They had spotted the owl as it flew into the tree initially, but couldn’t quite tell what it was carrying at first.” He added, “We quickly spotted the owl and could immediately recognize that it was carrying a stick horse.”
