Default One of you could be the possum killer!

I was coming home from bowling at Clover Leaf and near Dixon Landing in Milpitas about 3 hours ago and I saw what looked like a blue 2000 RS hit a possum. I slowly drove by it and it was moving around and looked badly injured and was slowly dying. My friend told me we should have gone back to hit it with a big stick but I dont want to kill it. Not sure if I should have but I was pretty sad about it. I almost hit a kitten today by the gym!!! Any Blue RS's driving in Milpitas at about Midnight? eh eh eh?

I am sorry, I shouldn't have laughed that hard. I just pictured a dog running into a fence..

My dog hates those damn racoons. Only time I have ever seen her look really pissed.

haha no don't get me wrong, I was laughin my ass off when my dog did that...but at the same time I was pissed because it was right thru the fence me and my dad spent all day building...my dog saw this possum running along the fence...so naturally my dog goes insane barking and running full speed...and when the possum jumped into the neighbors back yard...well harley(my dog) decided he could make his way into the neighbors yard...he ran head first into the fence and straight thru into the neighbors pool. it was funny as hell, but we had to rebuild the fence, damn possums, think they can just tease my dog and shiz.

A possum is just an oversized rat.
They eat my cat's food if I ever don't get home in time to bring it in.
They dig under houses, sheds, fences, etc and look through garbage.
I'm not sure if they serve any purpose.

One day a possum is eating my cat's food right outside my sliding glass door.
I'm outside already(the nerve of that possum going for the food while Im right there), cat is inside coming out to see what is eating his food.
I tell the cat to "get 'im", as he heads out the door at the possum with his ears back.
Possum still eating away.
Cat walks up and swats the possum upside the head with a paw.
Possum fall over and plays dead.
Cat turns and looks at me funny and say "mraa?".
I fall over laughing.
Cat sniffs the possum, grabs some food and goes back inside.
I swear I was unable to get up for like 20 minutes.
Just rolling around on the deck having laughing my *** off.

but the possum is still one of God's (or insert your religion's deity figure).

call me getting old, but i am getting to the point i cant even kill ants.

i have these fears of having nightmares of like gigantic ant things coming back and killing me.

so, in conclusion, i would try to avoid any and all animals if i were to be in contact. of course this is all within reason. i wont try to do a swerve manuever in like a crowded freeway or something.

after all, they are God's creatures and they dont know what they are doing is bad. all they do is eat to survive and create offsprings.

i would have called like the closest animal control for that city and told them the situation.

either they would have taken the thing to a vet or something or just euthenize it...
