Killed a bullfrog on my bike. Ran over it with the front tire at the start of a 2hr ride. When I got home, I realized it was pasted onto the downtube - at least he got to see the sights.

I rode over the middle of a squirrel once. He scrambled off into the bushes and I don't know if he lived...

Might have killed a deer. I hit it at 40 mph on a downhill. Killed my bike for sure. Broke in to three pieces! Carbon fiber goes bang when it breaks! The deer wandered off but wasn't looking so good. Neither was I!

I've seen a rabbit get caught in a chain before. It hit the rear derailleur, flipping it upside down and breaking the der and the chain. nasty stuff.

I've hit lots of frogs and snakes. I almost hit a deer when I was about 10 years old. Most terrifying bike experience ever....even topped the concussion and ER visit I had after a nasty crash as a kid.

...might explain some things though... hmmm...

I was going 35 mph downhill one time and two squirrels ran across the path ahead of me and stopped RIGHT IN MY PATH. I slammed on my brakes and swerved and missed them, and definitely would have hit them because they didn't budge at all. Stupid squirrels.
