Horned Owl Clings to Radiator Cap for Eighty Mile Drive
ALIVE owl of the horned species flew up to the car of George Carpenter of Minneapolis while he was driving near St. Cloud, Minnesota, and refused to be shooed away. The tenacious bird clung to the radiator cap for the entire 80 mile trip back to Minneapolis, making a living radiator ornament that attracted considerable attention. The owl is now making its home in the Carpenter garage, and is rapidly becoming a family pet. Mice have mysteriously disappeared from the garage and vicinity since the arrival of this bird, so the Carpenters consider that it is earning its board.
