I noticed this creature as I was upon him, and missed him by inches. It's one thing if an animal runs across the road, but he was just sitting up and staring at the oncoming cars. I think he must have been swiped by another vehicle and was in a bit of shock, and was handing out that shock to everyone who passed him and yelled "OMG!" like I did.'
Now, I'm just left with the mystery. Was it a very large racoon in the road or something else. Let's see.
Hmmm...I still can't decide, maybe I should have stopped for a DNA sample instead of zooming past.
