A coyote got stuck in a car grill for 20 miles, but amazingly sustained minimal injuries.

ALBERTA, Canada (WTVD) -- It was like a real-life scene out of an old Wile E. Coyote cartoon - and like the hapless Wile E., this coyote in Canada survived an incredible situation.

A woman was driving to work when the animal darted out in front of her vehicle, giving her little time to swerve before hitting it.

She continued on her commute, and 20 miles later, a construction worker told her the coyote was embedded in her car's grill.

The woman snapped a photo of the stuck coyote, who seemed more embarrassed than hurt.

Wildlife officials freed the animal, which amazingly had only minimal injuries. It was soon after released back into the wild.
