A great horned owl was recently trapped in the grill of an SUV after it was apparently struck in Florida. It rode several hundred miles in that grill, and was finally seen and released. The good news is that it seems to be okay.’

I thought you might want to share this. Poor guy was probably scared, but he is fine. Nice to see that the driver and others cared so much about getting him out and safe. Those eyes…I worked briefly at a wildlife rehab and one of the “patients” was a owl (I honestly can’t remember what kind, but it was big!) and it was nerve wracking getting next to him. The eyes were so piercing and alert as he swayed and hissed at anyone who approached. I would get goosebumps just passing by as the primal, reptilian part of my mind was screeching “please don’t hurt me!”
