    A lady was telling her neighbor that she saw a man driving a pick-up truck down the interstate, and a dog was hanging on to the tailgate for dear life.

    She said if the pick-up truck driver hadn't been going so fast in the other direction, she would have tried to stop him.

    A few weeks later, her neighbor saw this truck at the Bass Pro Shop in Daphne, Alabama .

    The pick-up truck driver is a local taxidermist with a great sense of humor. And it's not a dog, it's a coyote. Can you imagine how many people try to stop this guy?

    Funny yet disturbing at the same time.

    This reminds me of the story of the couple who, at night, hit a coyote while going 70mph down an interstate. They didn't stop (!) but, hours later when they stopped and went to check on damage, noticed a pair of eyes staring out from their front grill. Yup, the coyote was tucked up under the front bumper. It took animal control and a mechanic to free the poor thing who, thankfully, was okay. That's one lucky coyote!

    I don't get the humor, think it is very poor judgement and rather sick also.

    Mistreatment, or the suggestion thereof, is always distasteful, IMH. That said, my earlier posting about the coyote under the front bumper is a true one and illustrates that someone might think they "got away with it" but sometimes it comes back to bite you! I'm just glad, in the long run, the poor thing was okay.

    I was driving down the highway a couple of years ago, going around 120 or something, and I passed a dude with a dog in the bed of his pick up truck!
    I slowed down and fumbled to take my digital camera out of my purse to take a pic of the poor dog, and his license plate to give it to the cops. My picture came out fuzzy (I know I shouldn't have been driving and trying to mess with a camera) and the guy got off the highway a couple of exits later, so I really didn't have anything to bring the cops. Unfortunately. I really was going to report him, but I couldn't get a clear pic of his license plate.

    I'm sure they passed a law about not letting dogs ride in pickup beds, unless they are in a dog cage or dog crate. It use to bring bad feeling to me to see the poor dog trying to brace itself to keep from sliding around the bed. I haven't seen much of it for the last several years.

    Some states do have some sort of law concerning animals riding in the pick up bed. My husband goes to great lengths to insure our pups are safe riding back there. He installs a piece of round pipe about the thickness of a cigar, that runs the length of his toolboxes. There he attaches rings and a short lead to hook the dogs up to. They can't jump out or climb up on the boxes. He even has a "beware of dog" sign posted, so lookie lou's don't get to close.

    They still can wander in the bed of the truck and lay down to get out of the wind. We have a rubber bed mat so they don't slip and slide all over, and a piece of carpeting to lay on if the rubber mat is to hot.

    This reinforces my very strong belief that the only good coyote is a DEAD coyote! They're just sharks with legs!

    I forwarded this on to dh. Arron and his family used to hunt coyote in the winter. The stories I have heard!!! They usually did not use their brain because their lack of personal safety appalls me. In all other matters relating to guns/hunting, they are extemely safe, but for some reason not while coyote hunting. Must be the cold froze their brains!! One year Arron went out for coyote and came home with three. It was so cold out that he decided to leave them outside until he could get them in to be tanned. He lined them up along the fence. It looked like they were running in our backyard. We definitely got a lot of looks from the neighbors!! It startled me everytime I saw it until I remembered why they were there.

    I beg to differ, being Native American I don't see the need to have any animal killed that isn't necessary for providing for one's family. Here in Central Oregon cougars, bears are seen in and around town. And the first response is let's go kill the beast before it eats someone's poodle. Most seem to forget we have moved into their "home" and now they have no where to find food cause it's been replaced with a shopping mall or a house.
    A few weeks ago, while traveling home from Eugene my husband and I had the distinct privilege to see a cougar run across the road and disappear into the forest. And a few days before that a deer ran out in front of us and was clipped by our bumper. Thankfully he or she got up and ran off to be with his friends nearby. Minor damage was done to my truck, but it was worth the expense of fixing than seeing that beauty laying dead at my feet. I cried and thanked Wakan Tanka for saving that deer.

    there must be something wrong with this city girl, because i fail to see the humor in killing and stuffing an animal for a few laughs. kill one if you really have to, but don't make a joke out of it. it's not funny when we do it to each other.

    I am Native American too and agree with you. There is nothing more thrilling than seeing a wild animal in my yard whether it be a deer, coyote, fox, etc. I never understood the thrill of the kill.

    Ditto, from a plain old vanilla American. :) Most people crave the sight of a wild animal; I certainly do.

    That's too shocking to be funny; could cause some bad reactions from other motorists. Many years ago, I saw spread-eagled and wired to an 18-wheeler tractor-trailer grill, a stuffed Wile E. Coyote. He must have gotten "done for" while he was trying to catch the rotten, tricky roadrunner. For anyone familiar with those cartoons, THAT was funny!

    Nothing wrong with vanilla, it's my favorite ice cream. :)

    Same here. I have relatives who hunt, but they use what they get for food. This fall I had the privilege of seeing three beautiful deer walk out of the cornfield and into our farmyard. It was awesome!
