Politics from the Palouse to Puget Sound

I'm just a bug on the windshield of life

This was too good not to share. From today's Whitman County Gazette:
A coyote got an up-front view of the South Palouse River Road after being hit by Kelly Reiber over the weekend. The coyote was lodged in the grill of Reiber’s car and rode inches above the road for more than five miles until she reached home. Kelly’s father, Bruce, noticed the animal lodged in the grill as he left for work. Kelly and mother Judy then went to dislodge the animal, which they assumed to be dead. When they pulled on the leg, the coyote pulled it back. Eventually they were able to free the coyote from the grill, and it wobbled off into the wilderness.

Send it to Lenna Harding. Who knows, maybe coyote is resource-efficient as well.

The coyote wasn't killed, it walked away after they freed it.
