I'm assuming you killed it?
it was already dead

I ran over a skunk carcass because the road was poorly lit, and 3 months later, on humid nights it still smells like skunk in the garage.
$1800 in damages because the cable for power steering has been damaged.. -$500 in deductibles for me
lol i might be crazy but sometimes when you smell a dead skunk while driving it kinda smells like starbucks

i had a friend total his 330i after running over a deer carcass with one of the front wheels. the car jumped in the air and nose dove straight into the ground.

Sorry to hear about that, could have been much worse though. The exact same thing happened to me - four days after I got my car back in July. Only $230 of damage though.
Off topic, but after I hit the deer I used BMW Assist to send a tow truck driver out because the air dam was broken. He managed to hold it up with some wire so I could drive the car, but The tow truck bill was $260. If I had called AAA it would have been free. Lesson learned.
