It Upset Me

Driving home yesterday, I was putting along YVR in the middle lane when I saw a small pile of leaves in the road. Then as I got on top of it, I saw the duck's head and neck get hit by my bumper. Then I saw the puff of feathers in the mirror. Upset the hell out of me. But, I had to wonder what the hell a duck was doing sitting in the middle of a six lane road in the middle of the night? Still, I don't like killing things for no reason.

I know how you feel. I was on a detour through a residential area one night with bumper to bumper traffic and hit a cat. I couldn't pull over to see if it was ok. Came back the next morning to look for it, but there was no sign. I felt awful for days.
