Grilled Owl: Serve with baked potato and salad
WH-o-o give a H-o-ot?
Same thing happened to a friend of mine in rural Butte County, CA. Late one night, he was driving back home in his old Willys Jeep when he felt something hit the grill. He didn’t think anything of it at the time. He gets home, turns the engine off and there is a horrible ‘CRACk!, CRACK!, CRACK!” coming from the engine compartment. He goes to check and finds a barn owl flapping in his grill.
His feeling at the time was, somewhere there was a ground squirrel that owed him one.
Beautiful GHO, thanks for the pic and the story.
I am glad that the owl survived the mishap. Cars kill a lot of owls this one was very fortunate...must be good luck. The woman is a Good Samaritan.
