SINGAPORE - An owl was spotted in Toa Payoh MRT station clinging to a panel.

Citizen journalism website STOMP reported that commuters were surprised to see the bird in the underground station.

STOMPer Chun Seng said that he was on his way to work when he saw a commotion at the MRT station. He realised that it was an owl upon closer examination.

It was hanging by a leg on a panel.

MRT staff later caught the bird with the help of a passenger and took it away in a box, fearing that it would fly into a train and cause problems.

Chun said that it was not hurt in the process.
