Coyote Causes Studio City Crash. Meep, meep.
Watch out for 'dem coyotes in 'der Valley hills, y'all. The Daily News is reporting a man driving on Dona Pepita Place spared a coyotes life by driving into a home instead of plowing over the animal when it jumped out in front of his car late last night.
The car drove through the backyard wall, missing the pool by a few feet. The driver was not injured.
We see coyotes on city streets in the Valley every so often and have come to this scientific conclusion. These "fierce" kitty eating beasts act more deer-in-the-headlights than deer. Remember that coyote scene in Collateral where Tom Cruise and the coyotes' eyes met? Yeah, we forgot exactly what happened too.
