    Squashed wild life stats

    Just cuz I'm bored, these are the animals I see squashed on the roads and how often:

    Squirles - One every 3 months
    Turtles - One per month
    Armadillo - Daily
    Racoon - Weekly
    Snakes - Monthly

    ... and one time I spotted a squashed human...

    Squirrels One every week
    Turtles two a year
    Snakes 12 times a year
    Racoon Weekly
    Rabbit Weekly
    Opossum 3 times a week

    I come buy a couple of squashed humans in the median once on the interstate.

    There used to be a roadkill database site you could enter your observations into but it folded quite a while ago. Wish I could remember the domain name...

    Does it count if you helped an animal cross and saved it from becoming a statistic? I've moved 2 turtles across the road in the last two weeks.

    Otherwise, it's been about the same for me recently. 2 armadillos, a few squirrels, a possum, 2 rabbits, a cat, and a skunk.
