ask this dude...
I did this once....to a dog. Actually it was my ex gf's sister driving and the dog ran out in front of the van. BOOM! I saw the dog spin like no dog spun before through the rear view mirror. I thought it was spinning fast enough to create enough lift and take off. It laid there for a few minutes and then got up and limped away. I felt bad. It was a really hard hit.I've creamed three in the past year with the Jeep. First one I ran completely over and spit out. Second one I braked hard and hit square on. Knocked it down and chewed it up a bit with the front axle, but it got up and took off. Third one I hit broadside in the ass and sent it twirling like a propellor into some old lady's yard. Had lots of blood and poo on my bumper.
