Ranger vs. large vulture/buzzard
I hit a large vulture yesterday while on the interstate and now I need a new windsheild and hood paint. It scraped across the hood, and smashed into the windsheild (scared the Sh*t out of me...lol) and made a nice big head spot looking place in the glass, but fotunately didn't get hooked up on the wipers or made any dents or other noticeable damage besides a bunch of blood, guts, and feathers everywhere. Insurance guy is supposed to be out this afternoon to look at it. I saw the damn bird on the side of road eating some roadkill and as soon as I was right there it took off and that was it, I barely had time to get my foot to the brake pedal. Man that was a horrible sound and about gave me a heart attack because of how sudden it was. Must have been a very heavy bird! Oh well, at least the glass and paint is not a big deal. I will attempt to post some pics later today. Fortunately my truck stays in the garage so I won't have to worry about the windsheid leaking in case it rains.
