Yes, today we mourn the loss of a Pidegeon, struck down in Coogee today while I was putting along...

He lived a full and prosperous life.. until it was unfortunately cut short by my tyre.

All that remained was... a mass of feathers flying into the sky... lost... for ever... like tears in the rain :)

So have you guys ever accidentally hit any animals? Come forth and make peace. :)

You've just been reported to WSPA :)

Nah, can't say I've hit any animals... came close to hitting a few possums whilst on a twisty run though :)

Think about it this way, at least the bird died with style :)

i have hit a few birds.. couple possums.. a cat.. and a dog :)

the dog was the worst ran out from behind a car just as I reached it :)

my mum ran over a giant snake when I was a kid in brisbane though lol.. didnt even hurt it, was streched out from one side of the road to the other, thing was massive.

So far :

Bird ( Week old mazda - not even mine)

Bird x 2 ( my berlina)

Male aged 29 ( berlina again) he was drunk and played dodgem with the car in the dark whilst raining while i was going to work minding my own business - guess who weighs the most?? best bit....he had to pay all my costs, plus fines from the cops - and he did all that from a hospital bed.

Not that im proud of it, but at least he wont be stupid enough to do it again

once ran over a pigeon in my old lancer

felt bad about it for a day.

once hit another pigeon in a mates skyline, full car flying around a corner and a pigeon came straight at us and ramped up off the windscreen leaving a trail of blood and feathers. the thing launched into the sky and we never even saw it land hahaha

Thankfully I haven't actually nailed any animals yet...

But the other day, I was driving along Wakehurst Parkway late at night. Really hard to see. I saw this possum in the middle of the road about 1/2 before I was about to run over it. I swerved to the left slightly and it went UNDER the car! But it woulda got nailed by the cars behind...

Cleaning it is the worst part by far

When I was an apprentice I took a Fiat Regatta 100s out for a test drive and ran into bunch of pidegeons ( but hit the skids trying to avoid them ). When I got back to the workshop, I opened the bonnet and one flew right into my face scaring the crap out of me and sending me back into the workbench. I don't stop for birds any more !

When I owned my Ford Meteor I hit a cat on the way to work one morning and was talking to a mate as it happened. By the time I got to work I had a bunch of emails regarding this subject but the best was: NEWS FLASH, CAT STRUCK BY METEOR !!! I shot coffee out my nose that day.

And yes, like N1GTR, I've hit a person too :) A 12 year old kid crossing a main road during peak hour traffic on a skateboard !! After his parents finished trying to sue me for the incident, all my repair costs ( $3,800 worth ) were paid out. NOT a pleasant experience !!

i hit a pidegeon for the first time, come around the corner from maroota (down old northen road), and saw the bird fly down, land about 10m infront of me, turn its head to look at me, and that was it.. bye bye birdie. all i saw in the rear mirror was some flying feathers and a wing (i asume) sticking up from the road... no damage to car though, so its all good..

stupid bird playing chicken with a skyline

Pictures tell a thousand words!

plus i have flattened a hare, otherwise no other kills. i was on my way home in the taxi 2 nights ago and the cab ran over a cat if that counts too, i guess it didnt look both ways :rant:
