Road Rabbit

A few years ago, my husband and I crossed the gulf from Nova Scotia. We arrived in Port aux Basques 7:30am, it was a beautiful sunny morning. I was driving as my husband was recovering from surgery. He was reclined in his seat, sleeping. Suddenly, something hopped from the bush right in front of my car and jolted him awake. I explained the bump and he went back to sleep.

At least 1.5 to 2 hours later, we were almost to Corner Brook. A RCMP car was driving towards us, he put on his lights and turned around on the highway. I woke my husband up and told him we were being stopped by the police. He thought I was speeding, which I wasn't.

The officer walked up to my window while pulling on a pair of gloves. He greeted both of us and said, "hold on a moment." He then walked to the front of the car, took a RABBIT off the grill, threw it over the bank, walked back, said "have a good day" and got in his car, turned again and drove away. We laughed all the way to Grand Falls! That rabbit cost us $2300.00 in damages, but it was funny!
