Driving on the South Circular yesterday, the car in front of me hit a fox. Now, that was distressing enough, but I'm sure they didn't see it. What happened next, though, was enough to make me still feel angry a day later.

I had plenty of time to slow down and pull out to avoid the animal, which might have still been alive. There was no excuse for the car behind me to use my actions as an opportunity to accelerate and undertake - and to hit the fox for a second time.

I'm sorry, but as far as I am concerned that was atrocious behaviour, mangling a badly injured animal just for the sake of a few seconds shaved off a journey.

Playing devil's advocate, perhaps they were putting it out of its misery? Though it really doesn't sound like it, from your description.

Bleh :/

Poor Sweetie - I hope for the foxes sake that it was quick and I hope the driver felt really bad and that his car got damaged. It's a shame that in today's society people have got so selfish that their needs have become a priority even to the point of people and animals getting hurt.

Personally I think people should slow down and enjoy the journey. After all I think half the fun in going somewhere is the journey itself.

huggles for you

Ugh. That would freak me out for a whole month.

Not good. I'm sorry.

if it helps, perhaps the driver behind you didnt see the fox? In which case it's just a case of arsehole-ism rather than animal cruelty..

Fuckers. It's called "undertaking" for a reason.

Poor fox.. :(
Mind you, if the car in front of you didn't see the fox, isn't it likely the car behind didn't either?

Oh! I'm so sorry. How awful for you. I'm glad you avoided the fox. *hugs*

That sucks. All I can hope is that the fox didn't suffer too much.

dipshits. If you want to be charitable you can call them bad drivers who didn't see it; but either way it's a lack of respect for the world around them. I'd want to follow them and have a word; this is why I will be a bad driver. Honestly though, knowing Soutch Circular speeds, it probably was already dead, which is still a shame and doesn't make *their* bad behaviour any better. *hugs*
