Nah. I've hit many squirrels and they still don't slow me down.

In the PNW it's possums.

Down here in the southern PNWest (Portland) our possum problem abated a few years ago when the coyotes moved back into the urban areas. Seemed to put quite a bit of pressure on the cats as well. All for the better if you ask me. They don’t seem to have much truck with the rats, however. Damn sewer dwellers!!!

I would love to see more coyotes and less possums. Those things are butt ugly.

Only those in the know will ever see the coyote in the urban/suburban area. These things are very smart. The main way you know is 1. There are no possums, and loose/stray cat and small dog populations decline dramatically.

I see them very occasionally during the first minutes after sunrise, and rarely after one gets trapped on the Super slab and killed (this was my last sighting - about 5 months ago).

Just don't ask for the cougar. They may be pretty but they are dangerous.

Crows, too, are smart. Do you ever see a crow roadkill? Never! They will sit on the side of the road and not even fly away cause they know you won't venture over far enough to smack em. Some day I will surprise one of the little b--tards. [img]smile.gif[/img]

I used to see Coyotes all the time when I lived in Los Angeles and San Diego, I lived near mountains and canyons. It wasn't uncommon to see them during the day because many had become used to humans. In the San Gabriel Mtn. foothills east of LA, bears would, and still do, raid people's backyards and make use of swimming pools.

That's a new one! I didn't know coyotes cared much for sewers.

Coyotes Never get over on rats, BTW, at least not the bad ones.

Please leave the crows alone. When I worked auto insurance defense more consistently, I saw a troubling and recurring theme. Driver, irritated by a bird, rat, possum, whatever swerves off the road to hit the animal, looses control of the car, crosses back over the centerline, resulting in a head-on multi-fatality collision. Is it worth it?!

Bonni, I've read about you...

Female Driving Statistics

I was riding to work yesterday when I observed a female driver cut right in front of a pickup truck, causing him to have to drive on the shoulder. This evidently pissed the driver off enough that he hung out his window and flipped the woman off. "Man, that guy is stupid" I thought to myself. I ALWAYS smile nicely and wave in a sheepish manner whenever a female does anything to me in traffic and here's why.
I drive 38 miles each way, every day, to work. That's 76 miles, of these, 16 each way is bumper-to-bumper. Most of the bumper-to-bumper is on an 8 lane highway. So, if you just look at the 7 lanes I am not in, that means I pass something like a new car every 40 feet per lane. That's 7 cars every 40 feet for 32 miles. That works out to be 982 cars every mile, or 31,424 cars. Even though the rest of the 34 miles is not bumper-to-bumper. I figure I pass at least another 4000 cars. That brings the number to something like 36,000 cars I pass every day. Statistically half of these are driven by females, that's 18,000. In any given group of females, 1 in 28 are having the worst day of their period. That is 642.

According to Cosmopolitan, 70% describe their love life as dissatisfying or unrewarding, that's 449. According to the National Institutes of Health, 22% of all females have seriously considered suicide or homicide, that's 98. And, 34% describe men as their biggest problem, that's 33. According to the National Rifle Association, 5% of all females carry weapons, and the number is increasing.

That means, that EVERY SINGLE DAY, I drive past at least one female that has a lousy love life, thinks men are her biggest problem, has seriously considered suicide or homicide, is having the worst day of her period, and is armed.

No matter what she does in traffic, I wouldn't DREAM of flipping her off.

Since plagiarism is the sincerest form of flattery, thank you for the compliment.

Heckle & Jeckle were magpies. If you want to trying hitting some of them come to Montana, we've got plenty all year round.

Heckle and Jeckle were talking magpies. If they have those in Montana, I would suggest you leave the "weed" alone for a while until you get better.

Fox hat-- I'll have you know I have never considered suicide! I have too many men to annoy to give up my life's career. haha

Who were the crows or magpies that smoked cigars?

I'm pretty sure that was Heckle and Jeckle too. Smoking crows. We sure had good role models growing up. No wonder we turned to drugs, I mean, grew up weird. :
