Georgie Knox of Airdrie, Canada was routinely driving to work when a coyote flashed in front of her vehicle, leaving her no time to brake or swerve before hitting it.

“I heard a crunch and believed I ran over and killed it,” she writes on Facebook. Knox continued driving and claimed she found out the animal’s fate only about 20 miles later: “Upon stopping at a traffic light by my work, a construction woman notified me that there was, in fact, a coyote still embedded in my car. When I got out to look, this poor little guy was looking up and blinking at me.”

Knox notified Alberta Fish and Wildlife Enforcement and they sent a team to help the trapped animal. After a biologist made sure he was healthy, Knox said officers released him in Kananaskis, a park system west of Calgary. Maybe the adventures of Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner were actually a documentary?
