It's Owl Good!

Customer’s encounter with an owl was quite a hoot


Service Departments encounter some interesting tasks at times and such was the case just recently when a lady called in to our Bibra Lake branch asking if someone could extricate an owl from under her vehicle’s dashboard.

It seems the lady was driving along with her window open when the owl flew in, and no dispersions on the lady’s driving, it panicked.

Finding itself in a totally unexpected environment, it hid under the dashboard.

This was obviously no joy ride!

Simply hiding under the dashboard wouldn’t have been so bad but to then move within it required the service team to perform a major extrication task.

The project involved service department members, Steve Clavey and electrician, Daniel De Nicolis having to strip the dash down on the left-hand side. Once they had better access, they removed the owl and put it safely in a cage (while it tried to land a few bites)!

Once extricated the owl was taken by the grateful customer to a nature reserve where hopefully the owl will find better things to do.

Picture of the culprit below, which was identified as a Tawny Frogmouth:
