When I was a kid,our bus driver would make it a point to run over dead animals on the road. The other day my wife got mad at me for purposely hitting a dead possum. Anybody else go out of their way to hit a dead animal?

I once wanted to run over an already road-killed rabbit when I just got my license, but I quickly moved out of the way because I didn't want rotting guts on my car.

"No Tom, it appears the Driver was not under the influence but actually trying to hit an already dead animal. The driver is now said to me in critical condition at the local hospital."

I help get 10-80's up some weekends for the OT.

Drivers follow too close to another vehicle to see what the vehicle in front of them swerves to miss. That helps flatten them out too, trust me.

Ever seen a flying dead possum? I have.

I did hit a dead cat by accident once. I couldnt really move out of the way so I tried to miss it barely and stay safe. I was a little nervouse because my then girlfriend was a huge cat lover and she was already upset at seeing the dead cat.

I pass over it and I end up hitting it. Not only did I hit it dead on, the thing flipped up into the wheel well and was getting tossed arounf like a pair of shoes in a dryer. It went on for about a block before if must have fallen apart of something. I must say ther experience was quite difficult to handle.

On one hand I felt bad and on the other I wanted to bust out laughing at the situation. My girlfriend was hyperventilating.

Hitting dead ones is to easy, live ones are much more challenging . So far I have 2 deer, 1 wild hog, a buzzard, a few dogs and cats, a huge gopher turtle with a boat trailer, and an uncountable amount or armadillos, squirrels and opossums. The deer, hog, and dogs ran out in front of me and I had no choice but the others I just refuse to swerve or brake much for, I'm not wrecking to avoid an animal. No pleasure involved (I did take the deer home and clean them, tasted good) but I have paid out a $100 deductible on more than a few occasions.

Once. I was in junior high and hit a cat that had been cooking in the AZ summer sun with my bicycle. It was NOT a good decision. I will attest that it takes a LONG LONG LONG time for that smell to go away...

I have seen skunks get demolished under the tires of the gravel trucks in my area...



ETA: my method of transport!

No, why risk getting dead animal parts into the nether regions of your car and also damaging your car

I often run over dead cats. It disguises the bullet holes.

No, but I always want to run over an allready alive animal, when I can.

My Buddy ran over a dead armadillion in his open topped jeep with no doors on it and it popped like a water balloon and sprayed him with rotten armadillio guts, and sence he had his mouth open he began to throw up on himself, still driving down the road at 55mph. Needless to say he doesn't run over them anymore.

Dave Butz would drive around until he found a dead animal the run over before he went to the stadium on game days.

When I was a kid a friend and I found a dead cow. It was all bloated and laying in the creek. My buddy and I decided that it'd be fun to take a running jump on it. It didn't spray, but a racoon ran out of it's asshole.

City folks don't realize there are NO limits on the populations of vermin--fur prices crashed 20+ years ago. Distemper and rabies aren't common enough to accomplish squat. Rabbit and quail populations have suffered tremendously--it's not even worth feeding hounds or pointers any more. I haven't seen a pheasant in five years or more--in central Illinois where they used to be thick. Something has to be done--so I do what I can with the tires of my truck. <shrug>


BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Did you see my thread on a certain Ford truck? Another perfect road kill vehicle!

in high school/collage when we would see a dead coon or simaler sizes dead thing, and we had a car full of people, we would yell SPEED BUMP! and hit them..

1 time he was real ripe and bloated.. it exploded all under the car.. it was freaking nasty.. we were driving down the street with all 4 doors open trying to get the stink out and not throw up..
