This Utah owl has strength and endurance more impressive than most animals in the world.

A great horned owl suffered a tremendous hit and ended up surviving a ride that would have killed other animals.

According to reports, this bird collided with a semi-truck on I-15 sometime during the night and the trucker recalls the hit, but thought that the owl bounced off his truck in Utah.

The following morning when the trucker checked the grill, they were shocked to see the owl stuck to the grill.

Amazingly, this Utah owl was still alive, and DNR officials were quickly called to remove it from the grill of the truck.

The owl has a broken wing, but according to reports, it will survive after rehabilitation.
