Woman takes lucky coyote for a ride

An Alberta woman says she was shocked when she found a coyote she thought she’d struck and killed on the highway stuck in the grille of her car. She heard a “crunch” and thought she’d run the animal over and killed it. 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, still alive. She had driven over 35 kilometres at highway speeds.

Fish and wildlife officers managed to remove the animal, and found it had only suffered minor injuries. It was released in the foothills west of Calgary.
