I dribbled a skunk down the length of a Datsun (before they were Nissan) station wagon. Didn't really smell anything as long as we kept moving. Different story when we go home. The neighborhood dogs around us didn't like our car for a couple of days.

Did that with a cat once. It was raining out and at night, he just darted out in front of me. I swerved to miss it and went into the other lane with my tires locked up only for him to get caught by one of the back tires. Ground that little sucker into the pavement since the tires were locked up, got out to shoot it so it didn't suffer but it died before I could make it over there. Felt really bad about it but did everything I could do to miss it, also felt bad because my kids were in my wifes truck right behind me when it happened so they saw the whole thing.

Had a 12 point buck in deer season jump from the bank right into the bed of my truck. Broke his neck and we ate good for a month!

I actually just hit a deer with my truck a few weeks ago while heading to Oregon for a wedding, traveling through a "winter deer area". Sure enough, it was a Full Moon so there were tons of animals out moving around.

Deer ran out in front of the truck so quick I couldn't do anything but say "Oh SH**!" and scare the crap out of my sleeping wife. Damn near cut the deer in 2! The doe's head hit at about the front driver's tow loop, then I proceeded to run it over, was dead instantly. Ended up with its poo all under and down the driver's side of the truck, pretty nasty and stinky.

That was the first deer I've hit, and I wasn't too much of a fan, but glad I was in my lifted truck and not the wife's little Honda.

Sidenote: The same night I saw 3 other deer at separate times, a 'yote, a racoon and rabbitt. I was running the gauntlet! Only a 4.5hr drive.

Fall of 2010 me and a buddy were driving loaded tankers down a road on our way to a drilling location. We were doing about 45 and all of a sudden I see a mother coon and 5 cubs on the side of the road, mother ran out in front of me and couldn't decide whether to keep going or go back to her cubs. Well she started to run back and two of her cubs ran out in the road and being I was in a loaded tanker I wasn't about to swerve or stab the brakes. Needless to say I got the mom and two cubs than my buddy finished off the other 3 cubs that ran out after the first ones got hit. We came back and it looked like the scene of a coon massacre. It was pretty bad. I felt bad but wasn't about to risk my life or any other persons on the road for some raccoons.
