I was driving along the road and I decided to hit the cruise control button to start it. As soon as I looked back up there was some animal in the road. Not a squirrel, it was brown looking about the size of a cat but lower to the ground. As soon as I saw it, I said oh ****. And bam I ran over it. I was going 70 but I couldn't react in time because it was right there. I know swerving could have made me lose control. Looked light a beaver. It was crawling kinda slow into the road when I saw it about 5 feet in front of me. Poor thing.
