Owl Survives Head-on Collision With Pickup Truck by valdubem(m): 12:51pm On Dec 21, 2012
A miracle owl lived to fly another day after surviving a head-on collision with a moving Ford pickup.

The brown feathered bird was left with its head lodged firmly in the grill of the truck following the accidental smash in Addison County, Vermont, on December 11.

‘I received a call from the driver a little after five in the morning explaining that he had hit an owl,’ explained biologist David Sausville, of the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department.

‘He said that the owl was still alive and was lodged in his truck.’

The man slowly drove the bird eight miles to where he worked before calling for help.

After Mr Sausville arrived at the scene, the pair worked together to free the tangled up owl who was hit as it swooped down on some prey.

Using a pair of thick welding gloves, the animal expert held the owl by its talons while the driver worked to remove its head from the grill.

Ugly to you but not to me, I think they are beautiful. There are different species I'm sure you've never seen so don't be quick to judge based on some twisted 9ja mentality.

You took this right out of me. Animals are one of nature's cutest creations. Beats me how folks fail to see that.

As far as I am concerned, this mystery owl incident is proof positive that the world will NOT end today, December 21, 2012 at 2100 hours, as originally scheduled by the ancient Mayans.

Now, how do I go about retrieving all my wordly posessions that I gave away to strangers while I was under the assumption that I would have no further need for them.
