No, it was a rabbit, honest. The bumper is unmarked let alone damaged,
a tree wouldn't allow that... The grill is mangled in the lower left
corner, the seperate headlamp trim that wraps around from the grill to
the side is OK AFAICT. The center line of that trim is 700mm or 27.5"
above the deck.

I didn't see it well enough before impact to identify what it was, the
plume of white floaty bits made me think it was a pheasant. I've had
them fly into the windscreen of a car before now...

I stopped, inspected the damage and put the headlight back in the as
best it would with only one fully functional adjuster socket, the
other two being broken. Fished out several bits of broken plastic from
the headlight cowl/shroud that is behind the grill and went back to
find what it was... Definately a large, adult, rabbit.

I knew I should have taken a picture of said dead bunny... mind you
the Doubting Thomas's would have said that just *a* dead bunny not
*the* dead bunny. B-)

Re: Rabbits

I know its sad but it amused me...........

A precious little girl walks into a pet shop and asks, with the sweetest
little lisp, between two missing teeth, "Excuthe me, mithter do you keep
widdle wabbits?"

As the shopkeeper's heart melts, he gets down on his knees so that he's on
her level and asks, "Do you want a widdle white wabbit,or a thoft and fuwwy
bwack wabbit, or maybe one like that cute widdle bwown wabbit over there?"

She, in turn, blushes, rocks on her heels, puts her hands on her knees,
leans forward and says, in a tiny quiet voice, "I don't think my python
weally gives a thit."
