Man that sucks, I hope and am praying they fully recover from their injuries and ride again in the future.
The only hazard here that you can actually have some fun with and avoid is............dogs.
Dogs are excellent at matching your speed and angling your capture, to miss them and piss them off at the same time, once you see them coming and they have their angle of attack calculated (instinct thing they actually don't do the math), slow down a little, let them readjust their angle of attack (again I'm pretty sure it's instinct and not calculus that they're doing in their head) then roll on the throttle again. Repeat if necessary but not usually required.
A dog waiting in the bushes like a cop at speed trap, a little tougher to deal with, not as much time, but still roll off and roll on the throttle a couple times to confuse them.
Cats, cats are ambush experts, they like cover or hiding in unexpected places up higher than their prey. They also like their prey at slow speed. When pulling into your driveway or garage, take a peak into your trees with low hanging branches or on top of your cupboards in the garage, that's where they will be lying in wait for you. The cat never ever ever ever gets hurt in the ambush, the biker always does and it usually results in damage to another vehicle in the garage or driveway, cat gets a two fer (2:1) and you get a multiple deductible.
Deer, moose, elk, sheep, goats, rabbits, squirrels, gophers totally unpredictable, they run in flight not pursuit (unless it is the rut)
Possums, skunks, porcupines, armadillos, slow moving can be avoided but they are usually only out on the road at night. Don't overdrive your headlights!
Note; Armadillos and small wild hogs are like hitting a rock or boulder, you're gonna go down. Large wild hogs are like hitting a wall!!!
Rattlesnakes and serpents, usually slow moving, get out around them, most importantly don't hit them, they can flip up onto the bike and now they are just pissed off!!!!
ATV/UTV, totally unpredictable, hell it can go anywhere that's why they bought it!
Drunks, totally unpredictable.
Drunk on/in an ATV/UTV, pull over and wait for the carnage, it will happen.
