This is why you can't take your dog to the track.

Phil Moreau sent me these photos. Matt Kenseth was testing his NASCAR sedan when this coyote got in the way. Looks like Phil is a bit of a NASCAR fan, the A.J.Foyt story in Slipstream came via him. He says this is shades of kangaroos at Bathurst.
Jane and I used to do a stage of Rally SA called "Latvian Spy". The stage doesn't exist any more I don't think. Anyway, just as one of the hotshots (might have been Possum Bourne) took off and built up a head of steam, this kangaroo jumped out from behind a bush. Evasive action is a bit tricky on narrow dirt tracks.
