    It gets worse, to be sure it would be best to drive a red, white and black car around here,on a vist to the local garage for fuel in the 5mins i was there 3
    vehicles arrived with pigeons encrusted on them, on the drive home it was ,
    dead rabbit, dead rabbit, dead fox, bloody hell a pigeon aiming at me, dead some thing, another pigeon attack, AHHH whats that omg, oh ok its just horse poo, crap all over the road, i dread to think, another pigeon aiming straight at my windscreen, of a sudden the verges come alive and rabbits
    do thier( being chased thing) and start thier zigzag double back tacticts all over the road, i feel a bump and yes i hit one of the stupid buggers, it is a war zone.

    Im sorry to hear that wolram. Rabbits are only 1 point, Grannies with a Zimmer are worth 100! Try harder next time ;)

    My cat is bringing home larger and larger prey, im crossing my fingers that the next wont be a small child or one of the neighbours...

    I usually keep my roadkill in the freezer for quick access incase I need to cuddle. Too far? Yeah, I kind of though so too.

    Have the pigeons decided that poop on the cars isn't a strong enough tactic? They've now gone kamikaze? :eek:

    Yep, the pigions seem to want to die, the great fat things seem hell bent on
    splattering them selfs on a vehicle.

    There is a road near me, that I call The Highway of Death. I have seen everything from bear to birds along its sides. Another road in Nevada, out side of the city of Dead Horse..I saw 2 dead horses and several dead sheep. Just made me wonder..why not call the city Dead Sheep?

    My sister has eaten roadkill (bunny, I think).

    Now, before you scream about unsanitary: she encountered it after having passed the same spot of road not fifteen minutes before, so she knew it was fresh.

    My first husband would go hunting on his friend's ranch and they would shoot rabbits. He knew how much I hated killing anything, so he would tell me that they accidently ran over them. When I would point out the bullet holes, he'd tell me that they just wanted to make sure it was out of it's misery. :rolleyes:

    Or, as Janine "The Bowler" Garofalo eloquently put it:

    "Yah, it was an accident all right. He tripped and fell ... onto some bullets.":rofl:
