HEADLINE: College student's turtle project takes dark twist

A student at Clemson University performed a research project involving cataloging the behavior of drivers when approaching a turtle that was attempting to cross the road.  The results were (IMO) disappointing.  Out of 267 cars, seven intentionally ran over the turtle and several others aimed their vehicles at it and missed.

Does it surprise you that the number is that high?  That low?  Do you, or someone you know go out of their way to kill or injure creatures on the road?

Many many years ago in my late teens I dated a boy who seemed nice until he once tried to run over a cat, that was the end of dating that guy. If he had actually hit it I think he would not have lived out the night. I was sooooo pissed.
