    Why Did You Stray From Your Home?

    I'm pretty good about seeing and avoiding miscellaneous objects on the road even the toilet on the freeway! I digress. Today, there was a small rabbit that had been hit and lying on side of the road. It was so cuteeeee....and dead. Maybe the driver didn't see it and accidentally...

    The Massacre

    So me and my older sis were driving from Virginia to North Carolina a few years ago, and of course it being a long road trip .... we were destined to see some occasional road kill here or there. Well "occasional" became quite the understatement on this particular road trip. As...

    I was on a drive that was roughly 500-km long,

    during the summer last year. Every km or so, on certain wild stretches of the road, there was at least one kangaroo or other animals dead on the road. Not only was this saddening, but I love kangaroos too. Poor buggers.

    It Was Done On Purpose

    I was walking along the street and saw a few pigeons eating some bread on the road. It was not a busy street and there are not many cars there. A car was driving along the road. I could see a young man who was driving it and a girl sitting next to him. The man was driving slowly...

    Road Killing Machine

    the thing i hate most about the freeways here, is that they are stray dog killing machines. i saw a few on my drives this weekend to hollywood. why a poor stray dog would even wonder close to a 8-10 lane freeway in LA is beyond me, and why it would try and cross is just baffling...

    This Morning...

    ..while driving on the interstate, I saw a dog laying dead on side of the road and it was a bit heart aching to see. It made me wonder about our place in the world and how we live in it. Everyday we consume more and more, and demand more  products that are detrimental to...

    Sad.

    Sure accidents will happen. Maybe there was no way you could avoid that animal that jumped out in front of you even if you swerved with the reflexes of .....something with really really good reflexes. I just don't like the fact that people don't seem to care that is was a being...

    Kinda Bums Me Out

    It was a creature with a soul. Maybe a family was waiting right at that moment for that dead animal that was never coming home to care for them until they were old enough.. Is is too far a stretch to think another creature of the same species and opposite gender was going to...

    There Are Very Few Sights That Disturb Me More....

    I love animals, and to me, it makes no difference what they are. I have loved animals of all kinds, and I know, contrary to what many believe, they are much more like us than most of us would like to admit. After all, let us not forget that although we may be pretty high on the...
