    I think that the worst small animal to hit while riding would be a skunk. I see lots of dead ones on the road but have (luckily) never seen a live one.

    As Patrick McManus (author) always said: "There are two kinds of cows and it is important for a sportsman to learn to distinguish between them: SMCs & FMCs" (slow mean cows and fast mean cows)! This is a prime example of an FMC in action.

    I ran over a baby turtle, when I lapped back around it was squished, guess it's shell was still soft. I stopped and popped the head off of an injured bird in the road once as well. Popping the head off was way easier than I though it would be.

    I'm thinking this might be the answer. No mixed signals, they know you mean business. Oh, and be sure to hang the tails from your handlebars...

    And whomever took out that brown bovine with their bike is a serious bada$$.

    I had an encounter with two of these next to the road climbing up the Nebo Loop. Thought for sure I was a dead man. Nice lil' cowey... I just ease my way to the other side of the road and hoped neither they nor some oncoming car would take me out.

    The prairie dogs around here are the absolute worst.

    One part of my commute is especially bad as they've taken over a bit of the trail and just sunbathe on it.

    Dumb ass things don't move out of the way until the very last second and when they finally do, you can't predict their movement.
