Racoons, squirrels and skunks are regular commuters. Yesterday, it was an ostrich. Seems the big bird fell out of a cargo van, bringing traffic to a screeching halt.

Last fall, Governing reported on a deer (fourth item)that dashed across the Golden Gate Bridge during morning rush hour.

No word on whether any of the critters paid the $5 toll.
