A man's hilarious ordeal getting an owl out of his home is going viral on YouTube.

After 40 minutes of freaking out, Colton Wright wrote online that he decided to grab his Swiffer to use as a perch to lower the owl out of the window.

Amazingly, the owl grabs on to the mop and doesn't budge as Wright lowers him slowly, but the bird's piercing stare didn't offer him any relief.

"Oh please, don't give me that look," Wright says in the video. "Oh God, he's going to fly. Oh God, he's going to fly."

Wright manages to get the owl out the window and releases him into the night, dubbing himself, "The Owl Whisperer."
