Last year there was a couple making a 350 mile trip through New Mexico/Arizona. At night, during their trip, a coyote ran across their path, and they hit him. Feeling badly about killing the critter, they continued on their journey. They even stopped for gas, and noted that there wasn't much damage to the car from hitting the coyote. When they arrived at their destination, they heard strange noises coming from under the hood of the car. They opened the hood, and, tightly wedged beneath the radiator, was the coyote. With the help of the Emergency Services, the coyote was extricated...with only minor injuries, but in a whole new neighborhood. He was released in the wild, and is probably telling stories that will make his fellow coyotes howl.
