After ThreeShadow's story of hitting the Moose with Mongo on the Bucket List thread, I came up with a story too. Not wanting to hijack my own thread, I thought I'd start this one. What is the strangest thing you've ever hit on a road? Or any amazing road kill stories? Mine doesn't involve something that I hit but is one I heard about. When I was in high school, my summer job for four years was detassling corn. One field we did surrounded property that contained a chicken farm and the owner's home. He also had a "pet" lion. (I don't know WHY and I don't know how he was allowed but he had one all the same.) The lion's living quarters was a shortish former grain bin but instead of having a solid metal wall, it was basically steel wire. (Not THIN wire but probably as thick as your finger.....guess that wouldn't be wire though) Anyhoo....he would let us go up to the cage and sometimes touch/scratch/pet the lion if he was in there with him. (And let me tell you....even a lion's PURR is kind of scary!LOL) Apparently though, he had had two originally and acquired them as cubs. When they were smaller, he would let them loose to run and play. One day when he did this, one went to the road (he lived on a rural highway) and got hit. Now, I think this guy was stupid for having these things in the middle of Indiana without a proper environment but can you imagine? You're driving along a country highway in the middle of nowhere (in INDIANA of all places) when all of a sudden something runs in front of you. You slam on your brakes but can't stop and hit this creature. When you get out to look, instead of the dog you expect you see.....A LION!!! And explain THAT one to your insurance agent!
