The bird traveled at 60 mph trapped inside the grill, still managed to survive
An owl living in Florida recently got to experience the journey of a lifetime after it got stuck inside the grill of an SUV and ended up traveling at the top speed of 60 mph (roughly 97 kph).Sonji Coney Williams, the woman who owns the car, admits that, while driving late at night, she picked up on the fact that she managed to struck something.
Still, because it was dark, she was unable to figure out what the mysterious object was and continued her trip.
The next day, while running some errands, she became aware of the fact that, only the night before, she accidentally hit an owl which was still very much alive and kicking inside her SUV's grill.
“There was a family that pulled in front of my parking space and flagged me down they said 'Don't move, don't move! You have something in the grill of your truck!' And I said yeah, what is it? They said, 'It's an owl,'” the woman told members of the press.
Soon enough, the bird was rescued from inside the car's grill and, once veterinarians decide that it finds itself in good health, it will be released back into the wild.
