'Zombie dogs' roaming near Chicago are infected coyotes, police warn

  'Zombie dogs' roaming near Chicago are infected coyotes, police warn Police are warning residents at an Illinois town to avoid helping "zombie" dogs because they are infected coyotes. Police are warning residents of a Chicago suburb to avoid helping "zombie dogs" because they are infected coyotes that could sicken other pets with the disease. Hanover Park Police Department posted the warning on its Facebook page on Wednesday, saying the coyotes, usually nocturnal animals, are infected with sarcoptic mange that causes them to be active in the day.“Infected animals will often appear ‘mangy’ -- which looks just like it sounds.

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.
