Darn woodland creatures.

I'm making this thread partly out of frustation and partly out of curosity. I hit a deer on the way to work today, then proceeded to get stuck in a snow-filled ditch when I parked shortly after regaining control of my car.

No damage to the car (thankfully!), but the deer was not so lucky ( :cry: ). It had to lay there until an officer could come and put her down. This is why I need to carry a gun.

Anywho, I am stuck at work and need to vent, thus the poll. How many deer, cats, dogs, rabbits, wombats, etc. have you guys hit while driving? Share your horror stories as a way to begin the healing.

I don't drive. But if I did drive, I assure you, I'd choose the 7+ option.

(Only not, because I live in a city, and all the wildlife here are used to cars.)

I really don't think I've ever hit anything... unless I just blocked it out of my memory or something. I've come close before, and I've been in the car when my parents have hit things... but me personally, I've never had anything run out in front of me when I was going too fast to slow down enough not to hit it. It's surprising actually, because the squirrels in my neighborhood back home are suicidal and will run out in front of cars just for the heck of it.

Well, you see, I would use my super-human reflexes to steer the car out of the way.

We once hit a cow that rolled over the top of our car, landed on its feet and walked away unharmed.

Bastard damaged our car and didn't even get hurt.

Sounds like the greatest cow to ever be foaled, with the exception of that one cow, with the nose and stuff.... oh boy!

Well, the part of India that I've been to doesn't practice that. But yeah, I'm positive that there are still parts of India that do. And agreed, quite gross.

First of all.. cows aren't "foaled," they're calved... horses are foaled. Cause baby horses are called foals.. and baby cows are called calves.. yea I hope you get it by now. Second of all.. I have never heard anything about cows healing themselves with urine... and I've taken like six animal science classes so far. Third of all... how would a cow even attempt to heal itself with urine? Seems like there would only be a limited area that it could reach with that... not to mention that...... you know what? nevermind.... I have to go study (for Reproductive Physiology of Livestock actually...)

LOL! WTF? We were talking about Hindus using cow urine to heal themselves. Not cows using their own urine...

I'm majoring in animal science... for Pre-Vet.. but yea.. we study a lot about cows. And haha.. I guess I just misread that about the urine... I'm really stressed and burned out on school... got three tests this week and then it's spring break. So I'm pretty much just wanting this week to be over with.

I hope your spring break is enjoyable. I just entered mine. You seem to be working a lot, so take it easy during your break. Good times.

Thanks Yarn, I'll try.. but I have a feeling spring break is going to be busy as well with me trying to see all my friends and stuff. That, however, is a better kind of busy than work or school.

Ahh, spring break. The time you end up writing more essays and studying for more mid-terms than you would during a normal week of school.

Glad you'll be seeing friends instead.

I know I'll be working a lot. That kinda sucks. But I am over it, cause it just means more money. Today I slept till one thirty, which I haven't been able to do for a couple of months, and honestly, it felt great.

I did the exact opposite today. I sleep in almost every day of the week and last night I went to bed on time and I woke up at 8:30 this morning. I was so rested; it was such a foreign feeling.
