You poor darling! That was all you needed! I've hit 'roos and wallabies before and *nothing* takes away that horrible feeling. They have that awful habit of meandering onto the road, then raising their heads and just *looking* at you as you bear down on them. That moment of connection as you realise you're going to hit it - well - I wouldn't wish it on anyone!

All I can say by way of comfort is that (a) you had no choice: if you'd tried to swerve away, you'd probably have wrapped yourself round a tree and (b) the wallaby probably died instantly and didn't feel a thing. It really, really wasn't your fault, Hannah. It happens all the time and it's purely because of the internal combustion engine and nothing more. I'm sure Sunny would tell you the same thing. XX

Sounds like hitting deer around here.... they step into the road and just stare into the headlights. I hit one last summer, lots of damage, always sucks.

Thank you for understanding Bertrisha. I知 so devastated, I was coming around a corner and he was just slowly hopping across the road. I had no time, I did almost flip the car onto the verge as I breaked and swerved so hard. It didn稚 feel real. I知 luckily there was not an oncoming car.
It was heartbreaking and inconsolable. I知 terrified to drive now.
The downside to living in the Australian countryside
Thank you for your kind words

Re: Sunny update! More photo spam!

I am so sorry, Hannah. Seems you were driving responsibly and had a terribly unfortunate accident. No doubt you are traumatized by the unintentional loss of a life, tbh it would rattle me to the core.

Glad Sunny was waiting to help console you. Taking this theme full circle, your immeasurable kindness to animals must account for something in the cosmos. Sunny would not be here today without your tireless dedication.

That's really awful. In Paris I was witness to a dog running into a busy street and getting hit by a car and then running head first into a 2nd car dead on. The bones crunching and the shrieks of the dog dying on the street as other cars hit it over and over will haunt me until the day I die. We we're walking on the street when it happened and us and another couple started freaking out and I was like running to escape the sounds of the dog while crying and throwing up and gagging. In my mind for some reason it felt like my fault in that instant....I do not know why. Anyways, I don't know exactly how you feel but I think I might a little.
