Fatal bike accident kills rat

So I was biking in San Fran the other night and realized I didn’t have a blinky light on me. The *ahem* responsible biker that I am I decided to ride on the sidewalk. Out of nowhere two rats ran right in front of me. I desperately tried to swerve but just couldn’t react fast enough and so I could not help but run over one of them. As I felt the little bones crunch underneath my tires I was both disgusted and horrified of what was happening. I turned around to check on my little hairy friend, and as I got to him I noticed he was still twitching. Not knowing how to save him, nor wanting to touch a rat for that matter I stood there awkwardly not knowing what to do. “What is the right thing to do here?” I thought to myself. Thankfully it quickly stopped twitching and I assumed it had passed away. So no moral obligations left for me, right?
