Sheep aren't worth anything anyhow. The wool market collapsed when I was a kid, and I doubt it recovered.

Back then it was Nutria. Farmers just turned them loose. In the 1990s I had one living in a culvert in front of the house.

Also, at night, I sometimes flash my high beams repeatedly if I see one stationary near the road.



Both seem to help them out of "deer in the headlights" mode.

fatality

Looks like, in the USA for 2019, 38,800 were killed, and 4.4-million seriously injured in traffic accidents. If BEVs as a whole constitute 1% of the vehicles on the road, then there's a whole bunch of non-autonomous fatalities out there.

You might consider a go at Comedy Central or the Improv! We'll contact HBO.
