Owl in the grill of an SUV

For a change there’s been a story on the news that’s heartfelt and NOT depressing!  Boy Howdy but that’s a change! We could all use a few more stories like that!

Anyway.. what occurred was that somehow a lady “thought she hit a bird” while driving her SUV.  Many miles down the road when she was parked but ready to leave some people stopped her from starting her vehicle saying there was an OWL behind her grill!

(safe in a cage and on his way to the vets to be sure he’s not hurt)

The Owl, a Great Horned Owl,  seemed fine and not injured at all!  No one is sure how he got into the grill he seemed to big to squeeze between the grill bars!

Then of course the news went back to the Blizzard up North. I hope all electrical power is fixed quickly so no one gets hospitalized from the cold.
