A Kentucky family found a baby owl in their Christmas tree

A MARTÍNEZ, HOST:

Good morning. I'm A Martínez.

For a Christmas tree, the attention usually goes to the gifts under it or the ornaments on it. A family in Lexington, Ky., completely missed the baby owl in their tree. What a hoot it must have been for the carpet cleaner who spotted it. The little owl had been there unnoticed for four days in a room where the family watches TV in a house with three dogs. The owl was released and hopefully found another tree to call home that, this time, will stay outdoors.
