Growing up in rural Missouri, we had to watch out for combines and tractors on the backroads. We also had to watch out for deer, bunnies, chickens and more.
I have hit a lot more animals than I care to remember but it's because my dad told me never to swerve and cause a crash. Of course, it's hard to follow that rule. However, my husband and I had to when we quickly approached a dead deer in the middle of the interstate last winter. It was pretty brutal.
GRAPHIC: Oh dear, we hit a deer
And that's what people should have done when a mama duck and her babies tried to cross a Minnesota interstate -- but am I wrong to admit that I'm really glad they didn't do what they were supposed to?
