    I didn't mean to kill it... didn't even know it was a raccoon, thought it was newspaper. But it had to die because it broke my car

    looks like they might be big assholes judging from the damage. i once took out 11 coons one summer back in the day in my Omni...only knocked the liscense plate off once. i know it sounds like a lot of coons...but actually trying to hit them helps a bit. :) you don't take near as much damage if you can line them up with the tire.
