Traveling owl: Man drives hours to Florida with bird in truck’s grille

NAPLES, Fla. – A man moving from Alabama to southwest Florida traveled hundreds of miles with an owl stuck in his truck’s grille.

The owl survived. Torie Gray said he saw a vehicle ahead of him swerve on Interstate 75 to avoid the great horned owl. But somehow he hit it and it became lodged in the truck.

Gray says he saw the damage to his vehicle and the owl inside, but he wasn't sure it was still alive. Gray called the Conservancy of Southwest Florida, which sent a volunteer to help dislodge the bird.
