A Eurasian eagle owl reported missing from the Minnesota Zoo has died, according to an update from the zoo Thursday.

The Minnesota Zoo first reported Gladys was missing on Tuesday. The zoo stated Gladys had flown away during a routine training session earlier this month.

After zoo officials asked for the public's help in keeping an eye out for Gladys near the zoo, a neighbor reported finding Gladys on the side of the road. The neighbor, who noted that Gladys was hurt, called the zoo and then transported the owl there.

The zoo reported its veterinary team "responded immediately but, sadly, Gladys had already died."
