Happy News: Coyote Rescue
October 2, 2017 2:41pm CST
I thought with today's tragic event in Las Vegas I would post some news with a much happier ending. My thoughts and prayers go out to the wounded and families of the dead suffering from this terrible senseless violence. Here is a summary of an article intended to give us a glimmer of hope that everything in this crazy world is not doomed and sometimes turns out right... And distracts us momentarily from today's news. Georgie Knox of Airdrie, Alberta, (Canada) was driving to work when a coyote darted in front of her car and she hit it. "I heard a crunch and believed I ran over and killed it," she said on social media. But 30 minutes and 20 miles down the road, she found out from a construction worker that the coyote was still very much alive, and trapped. "When I got out to look, this poor little guy was stuck in my front grill looking up and blinking at me." This nearly sad event has a happy ending. Alberta Fish and Wildlife officials were called and freed the animal. And although you would expect a serious injury from the photo, the only thing hurt was his pride. (Ignore that puddle behind him. It's not what you think it is.) Game wardens were able to release him back into the wilderness of Alberta, and like Wile E.Coyote of Loony Tunes fame, here's hoping the experience has made him more cautious than our cartoon character. Especially when it comes to crossing a street. Summary from article by Greg Rasa, autoblog Photo- from Yahoo news- autoblog
