Road Kill

I swear my car must be a magnet to animals. I ran over yet another possum last night. Even though there was absolutely no way of avoiding it, I still feel really bad about it. It must be the 3rd one this year. I guess it doesnt help living in an area with probably Sydney's highest population of wildlife.

Keep thinking I could have done something, but I would'nt pull off a dangerous manouvre to avoid an animal.

Just had to get it off my chest. Being an animal lover makes it worse.

Re: Road Kill

sucks dont it! the worst thing is if there blood and you dont get it off, gets hard to get off!!! hit a foz last year, was the 3rd car in a line to hit it, saw it run under the first, pop out under the second then straight under my tyre...poor fella didnt move

also hit a possum a while ago, heard the thump on the sump guard on my bro's EA and saw him roll around but got up and ran away..... he better remember that i didnt kill him and NEVER run on my roof like the others

Re: Road Kill

I used to have an open mind but my brains kept falling out

I've hit a few rabbits: scary moment when the front tyre aquaplanes on the blood puddle at 140 km/hr.....
