[email protected] Coyote Takes A Long Ride In A Car’s Grill — And Survives!

When the driver hit the coyote, she assumed it was dead under her wheels. Little did she know she'd hit a real-life Wile E Coyote.

When the driver hit the coyote, she assumed it was dead under her wheels.

Little did she know she’d hit a real-life Wile E Coyote.

That little bastard absolutely refused to die.

It seemed like an ordinary day.

A woman lived in the suburbs and was driving into the city for work.

In the open spaces between the two, she saw an animal dart in front of the car, she heard a crunch and figured that was the end of it.

It was not.

The coyote never went under her tires.

He was hitching a ride, instead.

He went about 20 miles at highway speeds in the grill of a car.

Was he stuck? Yes.

Was he hurt? Not really.

But when she stopped at a traffic light near Calgary’s Foothills Hospital, a construction worker pointed out the young coyote was lodged in her grille and alive.

Knox called provincial fish and wildlife officers to help.

They managed to remove the animal, found it had only suffered minor injuries and released it in the foothills west of Calgary.–Sun

Hard to believe that he survived the incident.

But this guy is as ‘indestructible’ as that cartoon coyote that could never quite catch the roadrunner.
