Kill animals and destroy property before hurting humans, Germany tells future self-driving cars

According to British laws concerning driving, cats aren't animals. Only dogs, goats, horses, cattle, donkeys, mules, sheep and pigs are recognised.

That said, I once rang 999 after hitting a deer, and the coppers who turned up thanked me because at that time of year deer were often found in pairs: if one had jumped in front of my van then its mate night do the same to a smaller, more vulnerable car. My motives were that I hated seeing it suffering but its antlers dissuaded me from getting close enough to brain it.
