In my neighborhood, the most common road crossers are pet cats, particularly at night. This is extremely frustrating. I would think people would see the cats by side of the road who were hit by cars and want to save their own cat from that fate, but apparently not.

In a close second are the white tail deer. We live in a heavily wooded area and depending on the time of year, sometimes they beat out the cats as most commonly crossing the road.

Raccoons where I am. I see far more dead raccoons than any other animal.

Lately it has been coyotes. We seem to have a bunch and they are pretty bold.
A number of years ago there was a wallaby run over on US 50 in central Missouri— nobody knew where it came from (other than Australia).

My thoughts also... 7 years in Texas, and never seen a live armadillo outside of a zoo, yet several dead ones on the side of the road.

Turkeys.


They just lollygag their way into the road and could care less about moving. If you get close enough, they just attack the car. They always travel in a flock of 10 birds or so and just sit their fat behinds in the street. They truly could give a care less about your car screeching to a halt mere inches away from them. I hate these birds with a passion and look forward to Thanksgiving each year.

Turkeys ?!

That's crazy that they attack the car in your area. Must be something in the water that's making them extra mean out your way

We have a lot of wild turkeys out here, too but they stay off the road and I've never seen one that's been roadkilled. I see them pecking around alongside the road all of the time but never seen one IN the road.

Maybe PA turkeys are smarter/less suicidal

Opossums. By far. At least in the East by my observations. Out here in the west, probably coyotes.
