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...

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.
