Holy crap. I fretted for about two minutes this morning when I flattened a squirrel. Then I had a doughnut, and I forgot about it. Until now.

I've heard of people hitting moose and dying...because the moose feel through the windshield.

But damn... The elephant actually attacked the car in annoyance.

When questioned by police, the pachyderm said he just didn't remember.

Always defer to an elephant when the issue is trunk space.

if you are going fast enough... hitting a moose can shear the top of your car off.

I had a friend die scooting up the Glen Highway in AK on his rice rocket insert himself into the side of a moose. He was decapitated and the moose disembowelled... so it worked out for both.

If you are going to bang elephants, do it gently.
