    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.

    Squirrels

    Squirrels are so interesting to watch. They do not care whether you are watching from room, the kitchen or whilst in the garden. Protecting their territory and having a ball playing around. During spring and autumn are the worst times to see them trying to cross the roads. I...

    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...

    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???

    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. ...

    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...

    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 :(
