    Germany and Dead Animals

    While visiting Germany, we drove the autobahn's for hundreds of miles.  We also drove the scenic rural highways.  I never once saw a dead animal along the side of the road.  What's up with that???

    It Was Dismal. . .

    I was driving the other day and I saw a fawn standing in someone's yard, munching on a tree. I thought it was adorable, and I counted myself as lucky for having seen the little guy. And twenty meters later, I saw a dead doe on the side of the highway. I felt sort of sad for the...

    I always feel sorry for road kill.

    Especially when it looks like a dog, or a cat, I mean that's someone's pet :( I had a dog get hit by a car, and a cat get hit by a car, and it broke my heart. So whenever I see road kill I always feel really bad, and I feel even worse, when I cause it :(

    Still Alive

    I always feel a searing pain in my heart when I see dead animals on the side of the road (or otherwise). I understand it is the way things are, things die (everything dies), but I minimize as much as I can - I would rather destroy the breaks on my car than hit anything with it...

    So Sad!

    It ruins my day. The bigger the animal the more my day is spoiled. I used to live near a lake, a long time ago. There was a path around it that I could walk or bike around. There was the body of a dog in the shallow of the lake for a long time; I wanted to call someone to...

    Is It the Dead Animal Or the Waste It Repesents

    I don't mind the killing, it happens, hunting, natural death, predators all the ills that can befall a wild animal.  What I hate to see is them lying on the road, rotting, and their death served no purpose, no value to it, nothing to improve the life left behind. ...

    Squirrels

    I Do Too. :)

    Call me weird Because I am, but I say a prayer and ask my higher power to take care of them,  And the family the left behind, etc. I believe all creatures great and small go to higher place just like we do when we die. Well that is what I believe anyway.

    I think it has something to do with showering in hot water, and also the feeling of clean, fluffy hair. Which, if you know me, I really like. It's just really nice to touch ><
