Georgie Knox, said in a Facebook post on Saturday that she was leaving early or work when the coyote darted in front of her auto.

"I heard a crunch and believed I ran over and killed it", Knox wrote.

Knox, who lives in Airdrie, Alberta had only just started her roughly 20-mile trek to Calgary when she struck the animal.

An Alberta woman says she was shocked when she found a coyote she thought she'd struck and killed on the highway stuck in the grille of her auto. The animal was fully entangled in her Toyota's grille, but, somehow, had suffered only minor injuries.
