    Looks a bit peeved though. As would anyone.

    That ride was a hoot: Owl survives 60mph drive trapped in grill of SUV along Florida turnpike (Daily Mail)

    RS/BBM: More like "Unless you are willing to provide me with a lifetime supply of large, live field mice in recompense, be prepared to retain legal counsel".

    Those are some seriously indignant yellow eyes.

    Last fall, I had one perched on my fence in the backyard for three straight days. I don't know what his/her deal was. I was going to call the Fish Game and Wildlife Dept if he was there the next morning.. But he had left. My husband thinks he was waiting for the wild rabbit that lives in my yard. I dunno. He lost, still have that rabbit hanging around.

    That would have freaked my dad out... he truly believes in an old wives tale about owls being harbingers of death, if they hang out or hoot so many days in a row near your house.

    Wives tales aside... so glad the hooter in the OP was okay. They are such beautiful creatures, but seeing those eyes peering out of the grill would have freaked me out. lol
