A bald eagle is lucky to be alive after getting stuck in a car grill.

A driver reported that the bald eagle flew in front of an oncoming vehicle and got stuck in the grill, WTHR reported.

The witness thought the eagle was a prop at first but then noticed the head was moving.

The witness, then, quickly chased the other car down, notified him that he had a bird stuck in his grill, and called 911, CNN reported.

The Clay County Sheriff’s Office and Clay Fire Rescue responded and pulled the bird out from the grill.
