I saw the pick-up slow as the family of raccoons crossed Fraser Highway near Murrayville.
Imagine my shock when I saw one raccoon come rolling out from under the truck, while another ran for its life, right in front of my van.
I managed to miss it, but when I went back, its sister lay dead on the road. I donâ€™t know what happened to the third one.
Was that driver in such a hurry that he couldnâ€™t wait for those animals to get across safely?
The road on the other side was clear, with me the only one behind him.
I know the driver saw them. I know he could have stopped.
We have seen this family of raccoons before, and now there is one less. Shame!
