Spotting Roadkill

Trappers usually take notice of dead animals on roadways

“Man, you sure are interested in roadkills,” my buddy said as we cruised through north-central Missouri.

I’d just said “There’s another ’coon,” and my buddy was responding to it.

Raccoons were extremely plentiful in those parts or there was a distemper epidemic in progress, because it was about the 50th time I’d said “’coon” since we’d cleared Columbia, 100 miles back. We’d also been seeing other stuff, of course — a few deer, some rabbits, a coyote, and of course the ubiquitous ’possums and skunks, who lose more of their fur on the nation’s roadways than in our fur sheds.
