Woman driving to work discovers coyote embedded in her vehicle

"I heard a crunch", she writes in a September 9 Facebook post, and because she thought the coyote hadn't survived, she continued on her way.

However, outside of the coyote jumping into the passenger seat and smoking a blunt with her on her way into work, pretty much the exact opposite happened, as the lucky fucker wound up getting caught in the front grate of Georgia Knox's auto and had no choice but to just sit there and take in the sights while they made their way to Calgary.

But a construction worker flagged her down at a traffic light and told her it was alive and "embedded" in the vehicle.

The helpless animal spent about 20-25 minutes, covering nearly 34 kilometres, while lodged in the car's grille. The concerned driver called for help to free the animal out of its misery.

The woman, named Georgie Knox, said she was leaving early one morning for work when the coyoted darted out in front of her auto.

Ms Knox had driven all the way "at highway speeds" from Airdrie to Calgary, about 35km (21 miles). Knox wrote on Facebook.

The coyote was released in Kananaskis, according to Knox's post.

Knox alerted her local fish and wildlife enforcement service to have the coyote freed, and miraculously the animal only suffered minimal injuries, she said.
