While biking in a local park, i suddenly ran over a squirrel and killed it. It had plenty of room, not to mention that she was on the grass
and i was on the road and we were at least 2-3 feet apart.
I feel terrible. I love animals more than people, but it just happened.
In the mornings when i run my 8K, i constantly chase the squirrels from the sidewalk towards the park fro them not to get run over by cars.
Once i even remembered, that i stopped my car across the traffic lanes, because i saw a squirrel with four babies. I immediately sent my daughter across the oncoming lanes to stop traffic the other side and after the family crossed safely, when i guided to safety.
But not today, it was not meant to be.
