If they pose a hazard to others I'll drag them off the road or if they are a new kill I might slow and look for signs of life. You never know what you'll find.

I came across a freshly killed possum on my way home. I moved it over to the side of the road and buried it in the loose soil of a landscaped median strip.
As far as I'm concerned, all living creatures deserve some degree of respect. And at the very least, they deserve to, where possible, be saved from gradual decay and mutilation by cars and passing traffic.
Came across one cat one day that had nearly made it across the highway, both paws were on the kerb but everything below that was flattened. Someone had veered out of their way on a busy road to do this.
You'd wish that someone would remove all that roadkill. I came flying down a hill out the back of Port Fairy one day, rounded a bend and found a dead sheep in my path; with the bike fully loaded with touring gear and the speed too high I couldn't avoid it, ran right through it. It had been laying out there on the road in the sun so long that it had a consistency of rancid pasta. I was surprised not to have slowed down let alone crashed but then the smell hit. Really, the other reason to be thankful for having mudguards.
Pick it up and offer it to a natural food nut. What can be more natural than carrion? Paleolithic man surely would have not knocked back such easy sustenance.

This is why I deliberately aim my bike at cane toads. A dead cat is a good cat, a dead rabbit is a good rabbit and a squashed cane toad is a good cane toad.
It would not be at all strange if history came to the conclusion that the perfection of the bicycle was the greatest achievement of the nineteenth century.
