On Monday, the San Antonio Zoo shared a photo on its Instagram account of an unfortunate, though not intentional parking job on the grounds.

The wacky parking of the white Chevy Impala was reported early Saturday morning near a stream at the local zoo.

"THE (VEHICLE) IS HALF WAY OFF THE BRIDGE," the report screams in all caps.

While the police report was cut and dry, the zoo decided to take advantage of the bizarre incident – especially due to the make of the car.

The Impala has since been towed, according to authorities.
