"I was driving home from my girlfriend's house when a large bird flew up from in front of me causing me to incidentally hit it with my vehicle," the filmer wrote. "I had assumed that it died on impact as the feathers disappeared shortly after impact."

The filmer said he was surprised to discover the owl was not only still alive, but had somehow ended up trapped behind the grill.

The man said an animal control officer was able to carefully extract the avian and take it to a wildlife rehabilitation center.
