Glad she didn't go down and that she's OK, the coyote on the other hand I couldn't care less about.

We have so many of them around here and they're really becoming a serious problem. They don't seem to be afraid of humans anymore and I see them wandering through my industrial complex in the mornings digging in the dumpsters.

A few years ago I spotted one drinking from my swimming pool!
As I was walking out to my shop at about 5am one morning, I noticed something to my left about 8ft. away. When I looked over, it calmly stopped drinking and looked at me as if to say "what the hell are you looking at buddy".
I clapped and yelled real loud and it ran down my driveway and cleared a 6-1/2 foot fence like it wasn't even there. It went across the street and ate the neighbors little foo-foo dog. (not a big loss)

Amazing! This case proves the theory of juicing it, not braking just before hitting a 60lb animal. Although YMMV.

I've hit a buzzard and a 65lbs deer hound, and both flew like a flat rock on a pond.
But, if he'd jumped up before impact, it would be BAD.

From the description it sounds like they weren't even looking... if they couldn't have avoided it .. no doubt hitting it while making evasive maneuvers would have spelled trouble. Check out this flick of a groundhog flipping a bike.

I ran over a white Labrador once. Damned thing must have been drunk, or was I..???

I was on my way home at about 3:30 a.m, came down the road and saw the dog about 50 yards up ahead as it walked across the road. It stopped mid-road and looked up at me. I'm getting much closer now. It turned and started back the way it came so I aimed the bike to the other side. It turned and went back to its original course again, but by now I couldn't divert and hit it mid section. It yelped as I went across the top of it, sticking my legs out to steady myself as I was launched upward. I somehow got my right leg jammed between the brake lever and the mut and had it nearly ripped off in the process. Then I landed back on two wheels and lifted my aching foot back onto the footpeg, past the now bent brake lever and carried on my merry way. I saw the dog pick itself up run off in a hell of a state... I don't know who got hurt more, me or the hound. I didn't stick around to find out. It was in a dark neighbourhood - if ya gets my meaning...
