Knocking a pigeon over etiquettte

40
Found 10th Jun 2010
so today I knocked a pigeon over (not on purpose), traffic dictated I couldn't stop/pull over, should I have done when safe and gone back to it? Or am I going to hell in my sleep because I left it (so sorry pigeon lovers) Asking because I feel a little guilty and for future reference.

no, its a wild animal, no one owns it, you dont have any legal responsibility

what could you have done? kiss of life?
dont worry about it, driving in the country brings all kinds of bunnies and foxes which are even worse to worry about!

just imagine it was a HUKD forum poster or two in pigeon form

no, im just saying there was nothing you could have done, going back you would have seen what the next lot of cars had done, it was finished off for sure

You can't have been aiming for it......you're female......so would've missed and clipped the curb :whistling:

I think i shall escape this thread though...

Just be thankful it wasnt a badger. Those animals are built like tanks

There is no legal requirement to report a road accident involving a wild animal to the police; however, accidents involving pigs, cattle, goats, sheep, horses and dogs need to be reported.

How did you manage to miss? Better luck on the return journey:whistling:

1 Blackbird
2 Spuggys
1 Pheasant (dead on impact, but I got out and booted the little git, wasn't amused with it)
1 Red Squirrel :cry:

Personally amazed I haven't hit more. Been close to hitting a deer that ran straight across me. Looked in the mirror and another 5 or 6 followed it. 2 seconds later would have been a total mess.

These are all on the same road as well! Never been close anywhere else (and I'm not aiming for them!).
