Waterford-East Lyme Animal Control Officer Robert Yuchniuk carefully removes a barred owl from the grill of Jeff Sammataro's truck along Great Neck Rd. in Waterford Tuesday, December 11, 2018. Sammataro was driving northbound on Great Neck, on his way to work, when he heard a bang and stopped to see what he'd struck. He found the owl behind the grill of his truck motionless. By the time Waterford police officer Cindy Munoz arrived the owl had started moving. Yuchniuk broke away enough of the grill to remove the owl. He planned to take it to the Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center for evaluation.  (Sean D. Elliot/The Day)
