ENGLAND --Yes, this really happened.
A couple in England had just stepped outside for a walk this week when they heard a bird squawking in distress.
When they looked, they saw a weasel riding a woodpecker.
The photograph, that has now gone viral, was taken by Martin Le-May in Hornchurch Country Park in the United Kingdom.
Apparently, the weasel was trying to attack the bird when it took off.
The weasel hung on for a little bit, but it was distracted by Martin and his wife.
The woodpecker got away safely.
