Why Do Squirrels ALWAYS Run In Front Of Your Car?

Jan 21, 11:35 AM

Have you ever been driving along, and then you see the squirrel: hunched over, on the side of the road, safe away from the wheels of your car...then, like an idiot, it launches itself INTO the road, directly in your path, instead of running away to safety?

And then double bonus if you get this squirrel: the one that runs across the road to the safe zone of the other side, hesitates, then RUNS BACK ACROSS THE PATH OF DESTRUCTION.

WHY WHY WHY do squirrels always try to kill themselves under the tires of your car?
