Roadkill: Our cars, known in military as POVs, kill a stunning number of wildlife species
I just happened upon the carcass of a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker and am now well over 100 species found as roadkill over the last 20 years or so. The slaughter, in large part, is due to Americans' love-affair with their cars. Forget about the price of gasoline. Most folks are just too damn lazy to walk to work or a store to buy a half-gallon of milk. That's what suburbia has done. Read about the slaughter.
