Bad Week for Wildlife

A few weeks ago I scared a skunk out of the drainpipe that runs under the end of our driveway while mowing the lawn. A day or two later I came across the same skunk (allegedly) flattened on the road outside our subdivision. That seems to have been a precursor the events this week; I’ve come across myriad roadkill during my bike rides: 4 squirrels, 2 deer (!), 1 cat and 1 mouse (different locations).If ever I were to have the desire to have a pet, this probably would not be the best time to act on it.
