Kentucky man finds armadillo under hood of car

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Kentucky man thought he was having car trouble, but ended up finding an unexpected guest under his hood.

Angie Day Wilder posted a video to her Facebook page. She says a man was leaving for work Tuesday morning in Somerset, Kentucky, when he noticed scratches on his vehicle. 

As he drove to work, he heard noises under his hood. 

Once parked, he opened his hood and discovered an armadillo. Officials were called and after being taken out of the car, the animal got loose and took off running through the parking lot.

Officials finally caught him.

Armadillos are not native to southern Kentucky and no one is sure where it came from.
