Wrong way to go about it.
Perhaps they are attacking the wrong problem. A couple of whistles attached to the front of the car and animals and flocks of birds get out of the way before you close in.
So, prevention is possible but a cure would be hard with just LIDAR. I think you would need something like infra-red mapping.
BTW: Has anybody seen a motorcycle and rider that has gone through a flock of budgies?
I wonder what a flight of monarchs would do to a tesla
