I see a lot of dead raccoons here in Oregon, at least in town. Out in the country, it's deer.

Definitely white tailed deer. This time of year they are in rut and running across the roads. Dead deer are frequent on the side of the roads. I don't know anyone who hasn't hit one or had one run into their car.

Porcupines. They're numerous, and slow.

PA has a huge White Tailed Deer population so we see a lot of those. Next would be Squirrels followed by Opossums, then Skunks.

squirrels by a significant margin with opossums coming in at #2. Only see armadillos early in the morning when there's no traffic so they don't seem to get hit as much.

You have to flash your lights at them, they are most active around dusk for a reason, they can't see well in bright light. And then the huge contrast between the bright headlights and the dark night causes confusion, similar too when a person flashes a light in your eyes in a dark room.

Geese just don't move. Once in a great while I see people honking their horns if they're too near the road and they don't care. They eventually move, but they do it on their own sweet time.

No one could possibly be that stupid. She must have been a stooge that was set up by the program hosts, to add some humor to the show.

White-tailed deer. Their "crossings" often result in damage to themselves, the vehicle, and, at least twice recently in my area, the deaths of two vehicle occupants.
