Who's that? Snowy owl rescued from inside Duluth coffee roaster

In a perfect world, when you're roasting coffee and open up a machine, the only thing staring back at you would be a pile of beans. 

Unfortunately for Ezra Bennett of Alafek Coffee in Duluth Thursday, going to clean out a "chaff collector" of coffee husks first required a call to a wildlife sanctuary.

A snowy owl had apparently snuck into the collector seeking warmth, and had to be removed by a representative from nearby Wildwoods Animal Rehab facility.

"That's the most caffeinated owl ever," one person can be heard saying on a video taken by a staff member. "He's so big!" another says.

Coming down from his coffee buzz--but otherwise happy and healthy at Wildwoods, staff there decided to name the owl Mocha.
