I'm so happy he's ok! But people really need to pay more attention to their surroundings. If that happened, this whole thing could have been avoided!

Poor guy. If anyone accidentally hits an animal it's always good to check right away to see whether the animal is still alive or not and if alive to get help.

Talk about Wyllie the Coyote! Certainly used up a couple of those lives! Love a Good Outcome when it comes to traffic and Wildlife, but this really take the Bumper!

An appropeiate tale for Coyotl the Trickster god of Mesoamerica... These animals are part of our defence against rats, they should stay.

What is wrong with people the first thing you do is stop and see what happened, you don't leave an animal on the road, even if you think you killed it, you stop and bury the poor creature!

God was watching out for this little guy. Hope he will be OK. I think it's against the law for someone to hit an animal and leave the scene of the accident and not report it. If more people were prosecuted for this, it will make others think twice before doing it.
