Yes. I saw an armadillo crossing I-64 last night (06-20-09) about twelve miles north of Evansville. I knew they had made it as far as southern Illinois, but I didn't know they'd come here yet.

Nah, this is just a new Mitch Daniels Private Project. Mitch Daniels has hired the out of state armadillos to act as the newly designed hoosier speed bumps. But just like a lot of his projects, they come in more expensive and less effective than the cheaper alternative, and cost hoosier jobs.

Me and my wife was driving home on 56 to Madison. In. When my wife told me to stop the car, so as we were slowing down I caught a glimpse of what she had seen. It was an armadillo, as we was trying to get a picture it scurried into a drain pipe by the road this happened today Feb 28, we were unable to get a picture, but I now believe people are forcing creatures into unfamiliar environments, and probly not just the armadillos.

My sister and I saw one in our backyard in northern indiana maybe 15 years ago. No one believed us then, but we both know what we saw was an armadillo.
