5 Crazy Animal-Car Encounters

Offbeat

Concerned about wild animals potentially damaging your car? You should be, and if you're not careful, they may even attack.

Wild animals are not creatures to be messed with, although there are many people in this world who think they make great pets. Aside from that being a really, really bad idea, drivers are often caught off-guard by just how unpredictable animals can be. Whether it’s on a random highway or a vacation with the wife and kids, encounters with animals can potentially become very interesting, to say the least. Check out these videos of moments when car meets animal.

For irony’s sake, it’s too bad the driver in this video wasn’t driving a Dodge Ram pickup. Why? Because the animal that’s clearly not a fan of moving vehicles is a Bighorn sheep, whose horns alone can weigh up to 30 lbs. This ram is capable of doing serious damage, but it’s more interested in establishing its authority.

As we all know, deer need to be taken seriously as a threat to cars and their human cargo. A direct impact can easily kill the passengers as well as the animal.
