Storybook creatures I’ve seen either darting across the road, dead on the side of it, or both:
- a skunk (I think)
- small birds
- other unidentifiable brown furry things
Squirrels, in particular, are common roadkill. They run out onto the road, and then sit there for a full second or more while they contemplate the oncoming vehicle and decide what to do. Don’t think I’ve hit anything yet, but had a near miss with a particularly stupid squirrel that decided to run in the same direction I was swerving.
