I have struck my fair share of things with the front end of my vehicles, but I can safely say that I have never hit something like this!


Sonji Coney Wilson was traveling at 60mph on the Florida turnpike when she felt something bump the front end grille of her SUV. She assumed that whatever it was had bounced off until the next day when she was flagged down by a fellow driver. The thing that she hit, a great horned owl, was still stuck in her vehicle's grille! An officer from Florida Fish and Wildlife was able to free the owl, and he was released back into the wild, unharmed.
