STRANGE ROAD KILL

Yesterday, returning from a trip to town, I noticed something on the shoulder of the highway.  The tableau that unfolded was a dead animal of some kind and a broken crutch.   Now just what was the story there?  I wish I had gone back and taken a picture.  Any guesses on what might have occurred?

  1. My imagination fails me but I'll be sure to stop back to see what scenarios your readers come up with.

  2. I want to say that the two are unrelated. I can't explain why the crutch would be there unless it somehow fell out of a vehicle. The dead animal...well that is pretty much self explainatory...road kill. And the two just happened in the same place.

  3. Well - there's an obvious answer, but I hope that's not what happened. Strange, that. I'm kind of glad to not see that picture. :)

  4. Apparently a wild animal with a broken leg, was using a crutch and some rude motorist said, "Look; an animal on a crutch." and his passenger said, "60 points if you can hit him."
    I wish I didn't need to explain everything to everybody. It's like you people aren't really listening to me.

  5. Pat MacKenzie -- I'm awaiting the same thing.

    Bonnie -- How practical can a person be???

    Lynn -- So, are you thinking what I'm thinking? The animal was actually 1/2 of a hairy person who had been attacked by a hitchhiker with a broken leg who beat him to death with the crutch which broke and only managed to grapple half of the man out of the car which caused him to break his crutch before he stole the car with the other half of the man still in it?

    Cliff -- Now there you go. Of course you would have the answer:) Now we're listening as if you were E.F. Hutton.

  6. It’s pretty obvious a hitchhiker on crutches was trying to make his way to town when a deer ran out in front him. The poor hitchhiker had to defend himself and in the process of killing the deer broke the crutch. Leaving him no alternative but to crawl to town.

  7. Yep. That's what I was thinking. :)

  8. Ralph -- Oh no! I think I saw that guy a bit further down the road and I thought he was looking for something down on his hands and knees. Now I know the rest of the story. Should have given the poor guy a ride:)

    Lynn -- Yep, I knew it.

  10. There is lots of talk about abuse of Medicare...maybe the deer was on medicare? Of course the motorist thought all those deer were just abusing the system and participated in a hit and run.

  13. I was thinking along the lines of Cliff n Ralph... but then it hit me, er I mean the Boy Scout- who was helping a Little Old Lady with a bad knee using a crutch, across the road.

    The Little Old Lady made it, tho the Scout (in a ccon-skin cap) n the crutch did not! Poor old Lady had to hop on one foot all the way to the Police Sation to report the Hit & Run!

  14. My imagination is going into overdrive at this moment. You know how I think and you ask this question, lol! If I had more time I'd type up an essay, but I have dinner guests coming tonight, much to be done, and road kill is not on the menu :)

  15. I am sure that a person, maybe with a sprained ankle or broken foot, was inching his way along when he was attacked by a pack of neighborhood dogs. He beat them off and would have escaped being dinner for the lot had his crutch not broken.

  16. Someone with a crippled leg decided to sacrifice an animal to their God/gods, and they were rewarded by being instantly and miraculously cured.

  17. This is precisely why chickens on crutches should never cross the road.

  18. Chatty Crone – Oh come on Sandie, make a guess.

    Tabor -- I have heard of people trying to sign up their pets for Medicare but never a wild deer signing himself up. There must be a good animal university that teaches them how to beat the system.

    Riot Kitty – It is ancient history what the chicken should not have done. However this was an awfully furry chicken

    JeanMac—You’re not alone. I did speculate that it could have been a really hairy human.

    Snaggle Tooth – OMG! A boy scout in a coon-skin cap..

    Marla and Steve – Okay if your imagination is going into overdrive shouldn’t you share some of that future essay with us?

    Abe Lincoln – Oh too bad for the guy with the crutch.

    Sparkling Red – Animal sacrifice and miracle cures?? What will you think of next? LOL

    Cube – you’ve got me picturing this giant chicken hobbling along on crutches looking both ways for a chance to cross a busy highway.
