The police department of Surrey has this great reminder for those of us in the Northern hemisphere:

Now, before you go to the comments section to let us know that this image is doctored; yes, the suspension couldn't hold the weight of a cow without buckling. You have to admit that it's a pretty good job, though, and makes the point well!
So while cows shouldn't be too much of a problem, keep an eye out for furry friends before you get in your vehicle (if you have one) and forward this public service announcement to your friends and family.
