Family Gives a Hoot When It Comes to Freeing Owl
You know this time of year to watch for deer while driving at night, but owls?
Lin Hemphill of Southern Pines says one of the night birds flew into daughter's car Sunday evening, lodging itself in the grille of her vehicle.
"He was moving so we knew he was alive," she said.
Her son, Tyler, opened the hood and removed the radiator fan cover. He worked for about 40 minutes to free the owl. He placed the owl down for it to recover.
"To our amazement," Hemphill said, "the owl flew away into the night! A good ending to a very unusual occurrence."
