I hate seeing anything happen to the critters, though I know that on the hwy they can jump in front of cars, sometimes not giving the drivers a choice.
But, when people drive too fast, especially on a regular road, vs. a hwy, I really see red. It's a danger to the wild critters, domestic critters, and yes, even humans. Grrrrr!
I'm sorry to hear that you lost another squirrel. :-(
