Furry creatures beware
It’s been a harrowing few days for the fauna of the Roanoke Valley. Recently I myself have inadvertently (and with much regret) run over with my car a bird and a rabbit. The bird I hit traveling down I-581 in Roanoke City and the poor rabbit ran underneath my car while traveling in the Hollins area. I never saw it, my wife pointed it out. Sad. I also witnessed yesterday a squirrel get run over by someone else and I have noted more than the usual number of dead animals on the side of the road, including a beagle on I-81 heading back to Roanoke from Christiansburg yesterday.
My conclusion- there must be some sort of El Niño effect over the Roanoke Valley now causing mass confusion and hysteria amongst the animals. If you’re furry and you crawl around on four legs best take shelter for a few days until this is over!
