Woman drives 20 miles with coyote 'embedded' in vehicle

Thinking she had not only hit but also ran over the poor guy, she continued on what was no doubt a sadder trip into Calgary for work than usual.

A coyote in Alberta, Canada went for a wild ride last week after being hit by a woman's auto and being "embedded" in the car's grill. The animal was alive and edged into the grill of her auto.

A SHOCKED driver found a coyote she had hit was embedded into the front of her auto - and it was still alive.

The coyote was checked over by a biologist from the state's wildlife agency and then released in Kananaskis County, in the foothills and front ranges of the Canadian Rockies.

Georgie Knox, resident of Airdrie, Alberta, was headed to work when the animal darted in front of the vehicle, the BBC reported.

But she didn't. Knox says while stopped at a traffic light, a construction worker told her the coyote still embedded in her car's grille.

Wildlife officials were immediately notified, and they managed to rescue the trapped animal.

"When I got out to look, this poor little guy was looking up and blinking at me", said Georgie in the post. Over 220,000 people have shared her post and more than 420,000 reacted to it.
