I’ve traversed about 2,000 miles so far and I’ve seen all sorts of creatures mashed up along the highway: skunk, deer, raccoons, snakes, birds, and even an owl. But by far the most common roadkill I’ve encountered is oddly butterflies.
Many many many butterflies are meeting their doom along highways and back road across the USA. I understand that people kill deer for sport, typically dislike skunks and raccoons, an may be terrified of snakes (hi Suha!); but what’s with the all out blood lust o butterflies? It’s so senseless.
So the next time you’re enjoying your favorite beverage, poor a little out for the monarch butterflies who have been gnarled up from coast to coast.
