In South Africa's Brakpan courtroom a owl caused a havoc during a trial. The owl was later rescued.

While addressing a trial, courtrooms are generally expected to have a limited number of people inside to hear the case proceedings. Not only that, but there is also a certain etiquette that one must follow in the court. However, recently, South Africa's Brakpan courtroom was left in a frenzy by an unexpected guest during a murder trial. Any guesses who this guest could be? Well, it was an owl that flew in through a hole from the courtroom's ceiling.
