'Zombie' coyotes reportedly seen in Chicago suburbs, and residents warned to keep away

  'Zombie' coyotes reportedly seen in Chicago suburbs, and residents warned to keep away Reported sightings in the Chicago suburbs of sick-looking canines could be so-called zombie coyotes. The wild animals are believed to be suffering from a contagious disease called sarcoptic mange, and the ghoulish nickname comes from the condition's effects on behavior and appearance, including fur loss and skin problems.Sightings have popped up in northwest and southwest portions of Cook County, said Chris Anchor, senior wildlife biologist for the Forest Preserves of Cook County, who studies coyotes as part of the Urban Coyote Research program and whose team has come across ailing coyotes.

Knox, who lives in Airdrie, Alberta had only just started her roughly 20 - mile trek to Calgary when she struck the animal. “Upon stopping at a traffic light by my work, a construction woman notified me that there was in fact a coyote still embedded in my car ,” she wrote.

A woman in Calgary, Alberta, has a wild story to tell after a coyote collision ended in an unusual way.

Georgia Knox wrote on Facebook that she was driving to work when a coyote darted in front of her car and she "heard a crunch." Thinking she had killed the poor creature, she continued driving for 20 miles.

As she stopped at a traffic light, a nearby construction worker informed her that the coyote was "embedded" in her car.

"When I got out to look, this poor little guy was looking up and blinking at me," she wrote.

Pictures show the animal seeming surprisingly calm. 

Knox called Alberta Fish and Wildlife Enforcement, which determined that the animal had just minimal injuries and set him free.

"Clearly Mother Nature has other plans for this special little guy!" Knox said in her now-viral post. 

Spieth still salty over DJ's 341-yard drive at Northern Trust .
Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth gave golf fans an unbelievable day of golf in the final round of The Northern Trust. After dropping a 17-foot putt on No. 18 to force a playoff, Johnson unleashed a 341-yard drive on the first extra hole, leaving just a wedge for his approach into the green. The 33-year-old would knock his second to a couple of feet, and tap-in for birdie and the title.
