    Not including bugs: two squirrels, a snake, an armadillo, and I was a passenger for a deer hit that totaled our car.

    Do people count as roadkill?

    3 to 4 blind, angry hissing opossums met their end beneath the wheels of my wood-panel station wagon. Late nights generally, after closing the restaurant I worked in during high school.

    Zero, but my dad once hit a small deer when he was driving out in the country, and figured waste not want not, stuck it in the boot of his car, and drove it back to London.

    When he reopened his boot, the deer was still alive, leaped out, and scarpered off into the East London night.

    Deer sightings were even reported in the local paper.

    So, zero for him too I guess.

    Ken, this is the most hillbilly thread you've ever made.

    One cat. :(

    I didn't know what to do. He was dead and I just sat there beside him for a while. :_|

    He's lashing out after George Lucas' museum decision.

    I had a dream about the time my dad hit a deer. It was a crazy flashback trauma thing. So I'm working out my mental health issues at the JCC per my normal routine.

    That seems harsh, it's clearly not working.

    zero. but i once was the first to come across a badger who was barely alive after being hit. :( i panicked for a few seconds over that i had to kill him, but then another car came and the dude driving it did it instead.

    actually, when i stood there my then-boss-to-be called and offered me a job, but i didn't remember anything from the conversation when i got home, so i had to call him back and ask him to repeat what he said because of a dead badger.

    I've had a lot of close calls because dogs, cats, squirrels, birds, people, etc. can be really stupid. But thankfully I have only committed insect genocide.
