Live owl stuck inside Ford Expedition grille [video]

The bird is owlright

An owl was stuck inside the front grille of a Ford Expedition in Florida.

Last time we checked an owl wasn't on the Expedition's option list but this is what a woman from the Sunshine State found trapped inside the front grille of her car. Stories about cars and owls almost never end well but this wasn't the case with this lucky one which somehow, someway managed to escape.

Escape might not be the correct word since the bird of prey was stuck behind the large grille of the SUV. The collision occurred at 60 mph (96 km/h) but inexplicably the Great Horned Owl flew through the grille and stayed there for the rest of the trip unharmed.

What I hate mostly is when a cat hide under the car and you don't know unless you start the engine and turn the cat into Tuna

The owl got a new view to how to travel without flying, bet it shocked a few people when they looked at the front of it and saw two eye starring at them. Glad to hear the owl is good
