This is a neat thread.
I'm going to be that guy at first and say "Killimanjaro safari", but I have other examples too.
I saw a deer by the tracks on Screamin eagle at SFStL while I was riding.
I also once saw a deer and its fawn (forget the proper sciencey name) on the train at worlds of fun by Prowler
Lastly at my home park Funplex (Omaha), I saw a bird actually sit in a seat and ride a tilt a whirl. It rode it three cycles in a row.

I once encountered a levitating, glow-in-the-dark donkey while riding Beast at night.

It was floating atop the brake shed and going like, "HEEEEEEEEE HOOOOOONGK! HEEEEEEEEE HOOOOOONGK!"

True story not even joking

There was this one time during a night ride on Maverick at Cedar Point. Some how a deer got in the launch tunnel and decided to race the train on the launch, (Cheetah Hunt style) the deer almost won!! The one thing it wasn't prepared for was the wall at the end of the launch track... Poor deer.

Rumor has it, if you look closely you can still see the holes in the wood from the deer's antlers... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Bigger is not always better.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Lol, I like this thread. I encountered a stray cat that somehow made it on the lift catwalks on Batman the Ride at sfstl.

While waiting in Top Thrill Dragster's line during a breakdown, I watched a group of seagulls play Chicken on Corkscrew's track. None of them managed to get hit, though.
Also, I must've eaten half a dozen bugs during the two days I spent there last June.
Seat, don't fail me now!

Angry wasps on Mamba's lift hill. Sadly, that's the most thrilling part of the ride.

I just swallowed a whole donkey!

And I saw a dog ride the train at Knoebels.
