Coyote survives collision with car

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/2009/10/26/2009-10-26_coyote_survives_75_mph_collision_with_car__and_ being_trapped_between_grill_and_r.html#ixzz0V5N4c4 T9

Meet the world's toughest coyote.

Daniel East and his sister, Tevyn, were driving at night along Interstate 80 near the Nevada-Utah earlier this month, when their car slammed into a coyote that scurried in their path, reported Rex Features.

Believing there was no way the wild animal could survive the 75 mph collision, the pair kept driving for eight more hours to their destination, where they finally inspected the damage to their car.

Re: Coyote survives collision with car

So... you nail a Coyote with your car, and then drive 8 hours with it stuck in the grill before bothering to even casually have a look? That's some unique brain wiring. Besides, don't most people need to stop to use the restroom at some point during an 8 hour cruise? When they stopped at the 7-11 they must have left him stuck in there...

I've ran over rabbits and squirrels with my car before, small enough animal there's no need to inspect what happened the car is going to do far more damage to it than it to your car.

And it's possible to go to eight hours before needing to stop to pee, I've done it plenty of times.

I must admit if I was a passenger in a car I would insist that a driver stop if he had hit an animal. However in Australia this might be more needed than elsewhere as pouch-young often survive when the mother is killed.

Poor little guy.

He probably kept up with you for a mile or so.

Tough little mutt.

Same here. And I can assure you it wouldn't be to check for damage on the car.

Poor animal, glad it survived. I'm with the folks wondering why someone didn't stop before the 8 hour mark. I hit anything with a car bigger than a soda bottle in the road, I"m stopping and checking for damage underneath the car or punctured tires.

Still, sounds like the plot for a sci-fi channel b-movie horror flick.

Why were Rusty's lines cut out?

Maybe this wasn't just a coyote. Maybe it was the Coyote.

I don't know. People on YouTube make some bizarre edits sometimes. I can understand it if it was a time or file size constraint, but that shouldn't have been an issue with this one.

I hate the ones that cut-off right in the middle of an important scene. You're only uploading one scene and you edit out the most important part?
