Okay, so this is embarrassing but you guys asked for it! First of all, I'm a receptionist at a vet hospital so I have a big soft spot for animals. When I saw the little creature run across the road I thought it could be someone's lost pet or a stray doggy looking for shelter. I couldn't just keep driving. The coyote was also pretty small so I assume it was a fairly young one. In my defense, it was super dark out and it's foresty where I live with little to no street lights so visibility is very

3rding wanting to know this. I saw this in moderation and hit No because I didn't believe he could pick it up and get it in the car without being bitten, but it seems enough other people thought it was possible.

Yeah I'm calling BS on this one. Even if it was a pup I highly doubt it would have been calm long enough for you to get it in the car, and I find it hard to believe you could have gotten that close to it to have not noticed it wasn't a dog. Your headlights should have been enough light to see that.

I know the mods don't like people saying fake but I just gave a logical argument as to why it probably is, so according to their rules there's no reason my post should be deleted.

Actually, there are such things as coydogs. I have one. It's when a wild coyote breeds with a domestic breed of dog. If you get the right ones you can hardly tell it from a coyote.

87 I have picked up many animals on the side of the road. I let them go but I have seen people drop off pets and I have retrieved them. I try to find a good home for them

Not all of them are shy. The ones near where I live will walk parallel to you, staring at you the entire time (probably hoping my dog I was walking gets loose so he can eat him ).

Someone picked up my dog from the side of the highway once. We were extremely grateful that someone had cared enough to help him rather than let him potentially get killed by a car. If I ever see a dog on the road I will do the same, no question. I find it sad that anyone would think that an odd thing to do.

My family and I found a dog on a highway turnoff a few years back and stopped to pick it up, cute little dog. It was microchipped so we found the owner and it turned out the little king Charles spaniel had come from a different state lol. Walked a long way! The owners were very happy too.

I thought it was was a little odd too. Of course, I live in an extremely rural area, so people let their dogs run loose all the time. Nobody I know would ever just pick up a random dog that could very well be somebody's pet.
