A Douglas County woman came out of a restaurant in Castle Rock to find her windshield smashed and a large rock near the car.

"I just assumed somebody had maybe come by and threw a rock at it, I was curious as to why anybody would do that in broad daylight," the woman, Krista Keller, told FOX31.

So she decided to call the Castle Rock Police Department.

After a few days of investigating and checking nearby surveillance cameras, they found the suspect.

“It was probably one of the funniest calls I’ve ever received. He said I have good news bad news. The good news is we found out who did it," said Keller. "The bad news they are only 10 inches tall."

In a slowed down surveillance video, a crow can be seen flying over Keller's car and dropping a large rock directly onto her windshield.

“My husband and I were pleasantly surprised that rather than it being an act of vandalism, it really turned out to be a lighthearted story,” said Keller. “With all the craziness in the world right now, it’s fun to get a chuckle out of it.” 

Officers at Castle Rock PD also had a lot of fun with the freak incident.

“A lot of puns were flying around … no pun intended," Castle Rock PD's public information officer, Taylor Temby told FOX31. "It was actually one of my commanders that said ‘no harm no fowl. Well, maybe a little harm from a little fowl."
