I think that would be one angry coyote.

I seriously doubt the facts in this story. I would be more willing to believe it crawled up in there to keep warm when they were stopped. There is know way an animal gets hit at 75 mph and ends up behind the front grill and survives. How did it get through the grill with the grill mostly intact? Not believing it, crawled up from underneath when the car was stopped!

Tough to say how he really got there - if you believe the kids driving the car, here is the story as verified on snopes.

But I'd have to agree with you, that it probably wasn't hit but rather they drove off not knowing it had crawled up there.  45 pound animal at 75 miles an hour should have done more damage, IMHO.
 
Either way, it was a heck of a ride for the coyote.

Well I gotta tell ya, your version makes a lot more sense, but I checked this out in SNOPES & they say it's true. I don't know tho. [8|]

COYOTE FOOD

Postby RedBud » Tue Dec 08, 2009 2:28 am

I saw this deer on Weds of last week.  The gun hunt started here in Ohio
on Monday, two days prior. I guess the coyotes eat well during deer gun season.

I think #6 shot is a little too heavy for a Roadrunner. I'd go with #7 1/2 [8D]
