    He would've made it across the highway but he turned around for some reason. Got him with both tires. I think a hawk picked him up cause I didn't see him on the way back.


    Flattened him. LOL!

    Dang you should have just said “ran over a rabbit”

    And your post could have been

    “Rabbit stew for supper” ;)

    I wish I had a dash cam, the other day while driving, the car in front of me missed a groundhog by an inch, some how the hog timed it that he ran behind the front tires and ended up coming out in the middle of the back tires all at 50 mph, he was a lucky groundhog

    I doubt it was a hawk - they prefer their meals fight back a bit.

    Y’all ever heard that song “ I got five pounds of possum in my headlights tonight”?
    A bluegrass group that used to come play at our farmer’s market did that song at least once every gig. Always made me laugh.

    There’s also ‘somebody’s moggy on the side of the road/ somebody’s moggy who forgot their Highway Code’.

    We have a ton of bald eagles here, weren’t they going extinct about 20 years ago?

    My daughter has had a male bunny living in the back yard for ages - a few weeks ago she adopted two females and now we have 25 rabbits in the back yard, growing fast. I'm looking for some good recipes ... but they are so flipping cute it's not gonna be easy.

    I had one run right between my front and rear tires on a motorcycle in a curve doing about 60. It was intense.

    I managed to keep riding. Bunny, not so much.

    A friend was trying to scare one off and threw a rock at it. Rock bounced and hit it in the head. Dead.

    I think they're fragile.

    Oh man, that's bad karma... You're going to have to buy this and play it every Spring, to get good karma again. I think that's a broadcaster single coil, that's great news. Chinese maple neck. The tele might actually collect dust.

    I don't understand their road sense - they instinctively freeze when confronted with danger, which makes them easy to avoid (and not be seen by predators), then run under your wheels at the last second. My advice to them is:
    Stick to grass,
    To save yer *ss,
    Keep off the street,
    And stay live meat.

    They could be playing a game of chicken, of course.

    I had four deer cross the road and the last one reverse course for no reason other than to become a hood ornament.
