Georgie Knox of Airdrie, Alberta, was driving to work when a coyote darted in front of her vehicle, the New York Post reported.

“I heard a crunch and believed I ran over and killed it,” Knox wrote in a Facebook post on Saturday.

But Knox was surprised when she reached Calgary. The animal was alive and edged into the grill of her car.
