On the way to work, we take back roads to avoid traffic. Unfortunately, people tend to whizz down these roads at high speed. Back roads, fields and farms mean there are a lot of little wild animals like bunnies and birds. As a result, the roadkill count is horrific.
I can deal with a flattened roadkill (I know it sounds awful!) because it doesn’t even look like an animal anymore, but this morning I saw a little bird that had clearly been knocked by a car but not quite killed. I still have the heebie jeebies from it.
I’d say drive slowly and save the animals, but I can already hear the fast aggressive drivers laugh at me… *sigh* CAAAAAAAREFUUUUUL, BUNNIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIES!!!!
