Soccer Player Kicks An Owl When It’s Down During Match


Dammit, Luis Moreno. The Colombian soccer player, a defender for Deportivo Pereira, kicked an injured owl when it landed on the pitch during a match against Atletico Junior of Barranquilla. The owl, it turns out, is Atletico Junior’s mascot, and was hurt when it flew onto the field and was struck by a ball. Moreno apparently faces sanctions from his own team, and will possibly be subject to disciplinary action from Colombia’s professional soccer league. Thankfully, the owl survived both the original blow and the subsequent kick with no broken bones. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
