Why do these dozy pheasants always get in the way? On my way to work this morning I took I slightly different route than usual and on one particular road there were pheasants everywhere.
These pheasants just seemed to appear from nowhere. Luckily I wasn't going too fast because at one point I had to come to a grinding halt while this stupid pheasant decided which way she wanted to go. It seems as soon as they see a car they decide to run for it, right out in front of you! Time for some defensive driving I think!
I don't understand why people breed pheasants
I really don't understand why people breed pheasants only to let them run wild and get killed by cars. I dread to think how many dead pheasants I have seen on the sides of the roads. If people are going to breed them then won't don't they somehow confine them to a certain area instead of letting them roam where they want to when half of them will get killed by cars etcâ€¦
It may sound cruel confining them but at least they'll have a longer life and will be less likely to become roadkill.
On another note, surely this is a great danger to people driving on the road. I wonder how many serious accidents have happened because of pheasants running out in front of cars and people have tried to swerve and avoid them. Keep your pheasants locked up!
