While California is often associated with images of large suburban homes, sunny beaches or vineyards, the reality is that much of California remains rural.  Californians take pride in the thriving farming, ranching and animal breeding industries that exist here.

In rural communities in California, car accidents involving animals occur on a regular basis.  Most collisions involving animals in California involve either cattle being raised for the meat industry, dairy cows, ostriches or emus raised for the meat industry, or horses kept for riding in the rural community.  Additionally, as many California suburbans encroach into previous rural territories, this phenomenon occurs frequently.

While living in rural communities often means decreased danger in the form of petty theft, violent crime and murder, one of the down sides of traveling or living in a rural area involves serious car accidents when one of these large animals are wandering on one of California’s windy rural roads.  Some of these large farm animals are between 1,600 to 2,000 pounds obstacles. A collision with them can not only be serious but deadly.
