An SUV driver on her way to visit her son in Plantation, Florida, says she was sure the Great Horned Owl she struck near Yeehaw Junction was roadkill.
It wasn't until a day later that she was alerted to the fact that the owl was very much alive — and very much inside her car's grill.
"There was a family that pulled in front of my parking space and flagged me down," Williams told the Fox affiliate. "They said, 'Don't move, don't move, you have something in the grill of your truck.'"
According to the officer, the owl didn't appear to be injured, but was not at all amused.
