Stupid animals. I was driving home from the lake last night around 3 and this racoon ran right in front of the car. Couldn't swerve and hit it dead on with the driver wheel. So when I dropped my passenger off I got out and checked for damage. Everything is ok, except it bent my new underpanel slightly and knocked the foglight IN! Didn't crack or anything, but actually broke the bracket and knocked it into the area behind it. I'll post pics of the hole and the bent panel monday.

too bad it didn't splatter blood on your white car, it could have been your custom paint job...

I hit a bird with my brother's car out on the highway, it was crazy thing just cut across. Hit the windsheild. It was in the middle of rush hour I had no where to go. Saw it flip up over the car and get taken out by the van behind me. Stupid crows. No damage though.

I was doing a drive with about 15 other peeps, and was on this straight, and hit a bird in the top right corner of my windshield doing 115, lol. it was these 3 birds crossing the road(flyin), and two mad eit across, the one in the back I guess was just too slow, didnt make it. little blood, feathers EVERYwhere.

Was driving near a lake, and a pack of about 20 ducks were flyin about 4 feet from the ground, and they werent goin that fast, and I coudlnt swerve away from the pack, and about 6 ducks rolled up my good, thank god their stupid beeks didnt scratch my paint, man I wish I had pics and vids of all this stuff, so funny..

I nailed a squirrel yesterday in my mom's Lexus.
Little fucker ran right out in front, I noticed he stopped in the middle of the car so I didn't panic and slam on brakes. Lots of animals do this to me, so I just keep moving and I pass right over them. Well, the damn thing took a left turn as soon as the hood covered his body from my view and he apparently ran head first into the driver tire. Thump, look in rear view mirror and there's the motionless squirrel with red crap on the ground.
No damage, just funny, in a masochistic sort of way :\

Dude we got this massive possum that lives in my neighborhood, we keep trying to get it but it's pretty fast for a fat opossum. Stupid thing won't die. And by massive I mean 30 lbs.

LOL. My passenger was a drunk vegitarian. Needless to say, me hitting an animal didn't help any. But the car did jump up and slam down pretty hard. Made my emergency flashers go off without hitting the button.
