328 vs RX-7 vs PIGEON!?

So its afterschool and i'm heading home in the 328, some guy from my school pulls up in mazda, revs and glances at the light. Alright, whatever, i have no clue what rx-7s are capable of.

So i get a pretty nice start on him and pull him up to about 3rd gear when BAM!

WHAT THE *^@#(*&!?

some pigeon or seagull or SOMETHING flies right in in front of me smacks into my windshield leaving all these feathers everywhere...what a shock. The guy saw this and is laughing his head off and then then fires off. I'm still in shock how dumb some mammals can be well i guess i can't say much better trying an rx-7.

Poor bird

I don't think a pigeon is a mammal.

It's the worst when an animal/bird hits a car, I never sure if I should feel sorry for it, or be worried about my vehicle.

backup and run it over a few times

I once hit a cat, and it destroyed my passenger side fog light. Stupid cat I was trying to dodge the stupid thing too, it just had it in it's mind to run right into me.

I don't think in either cases I killed them, because there was no road kill or any spattered brains or gut peices laying around.

Large hard object traveling at speeds of exess off 60 KM/H.

Target: Small mammal, with a bone structure much weaker than that of a human being.



I'd say they're both dead. Poor rabbit.
