    ...is that you are gonna hit something...like an animal and give your baby an owie. Well tonight was my night. Driving home on a dark road suddenly a raccoon runs out in front of me and Whamo! I felt the thud, I heard the thud...watched my gages all the way home. Jumped out to assess the damage as I was certain that the lip spoiler was done. I was so NOT prepared for what i would find.
    A LIVE raccoon halfway through my grill completely wedged in and stuck.....screaming and hissing at me. What a nightmare. i tried to pry him out but there was no way. Had to call the local PD who came with 3 cars and a
    noose. They were able to free it at the expense of my grill and who knows what else. Off to see the dealer tomorrow.

    That's exactly the reason why I'm parking mine for the winter on Sunday. Too many deer running here in Michigan right now. Sorry for your loss, glad it wasn't worse! Please keep us posted.

    Dang. I hate to see that. Hope the damage was not extensive. I think the cat won that fight.

    I would've killed it and pulled it out. Trophy road kill. Haha

    I hope your cat is okay. Glad you didn't hit a deer!

    Been there and done that...twice in my SuperBee. First was at 60mph and it felt like I hit a bowling ball. Pulled over and it was stuffed in there like that and still alive with only paws hanging out. I pushed down the spoiler with my foot and the bastard wiggled and crawled out, looked at me like I was an assh*le and walked off about 20 ft. Sat there and stared at me.

    Drove up the road and found some light. Fan making noise. Drove home.

    Next day I assessed damage taking car apart.

    Cracked Lower grill
    Bent Condenser
    Bent Radiator
    Bent steel radiator support
    Cracked fan shroud
    Cracked pan front on fascia
    Cracked air deflectors in front of radiator
    Plus pish pins, rivets, etc

    Parts costs was like $1400 from online factory parts vendors.

    Very next time I had the car out. Yup...bastard runs out in front on me. Luckily I saw this one and jumped on the brakes. Just popped the grill in.

    Yikes, i hope the damage is not too bad. That picture is one of a kind. You could probably make a t-shirt from that photo.
