WTF there's a big@ss rock in my front grill

Allright. So I was just looking at my car recently and notice there was this huge rock STUCK inside my front grill. I don't even know how this even happened. It also tore up the grill just a little bit. The hole is not big enough at all to fit the rock in so I know it's the rock that probably damaged it while I was driving. I don't hear the rock when I'm driving but still WTF bro. Any help appreciated?

CHK IT OUT

How in the sam hell did that boulder wind up BEHIND the plastic grill, especially without annihilating the intercooler? Did someone play a prank on you?
