I remember hitting a rabbit on the motorway once, its head bouncing a few times off the underneath of the car hopefully taught it that cars belong on the road, rabbits belong in casserole-pots!

i feel bad as he was probably on its way back to its babies with some food
on the other hand he could have been cheating on his missus and was probably on his way back to his missus, in which case deserved it

yeh well i hit a dodo. beat that but i have hit a squirrel before and yeh u do feel guilty to begin with. but you have to weigh up the consequences - 1 dead squirrel (which officially count as vermin, same as rats!) or your corsa getting fcuked?! know which 1 id choose!

A baby rabbit ran out infront of me the other night, somehow managed to go right under my car without getting run over or hit by my bumper. Could see it hopping across the road in my rear view mirror afterwards Lucky rabbit

I ran over a cat once,

Was driving at night... doing 30 cuz was in town, and all of a sudden I heard a series of bangs underneath my car, absolutly not knowing what was going on, I looking in the rear view and there was this cat just spinning around on the road, and then it just ran off turned around and couldnt see it so I assume it was OK.

bloody thing ripped my neon off the front though
