I'm sure many of you have hit wildlife ; I have "met" a big red 'roo 4 hrs west of Albany in '90 ; took the front off a Kingswood wagon I was borrowing. Since then I've swerved and missed dozens and dozens of small animals , many were lucky because of the ground clearance of 4wds . But where I live there is a plague of walalbies , Easter Saturday evening 2 of the buggers jumped from the verge in front of my beater '81 924 and met their maker. No joeys were lost, I checked. Was travelling ~ 40kmh ~200m from home.
So I spent yesterday fixing & repainting the broken but tough fibreglass bumper and working on the sheetmetal valance. Luckily that's all it was, plus a paint crack behind the lip of the front guard.
I was wondering though how many of you with low slung vehicles have contributed to the animal strike count , and any tales to tell? It'd make me think twice about driving an exotic in the evening around here, though the 911 would wear it without too much trouble.
Mostly I'd think F & L cars would be at risk from hitting inebriated Boganus Horribilis in the city!
