life is innocent and precious - a baby bunny saved from the dogs!
while i'm not 'openly' an emotional person, it is hard for me to be rational when animal's lives are at stake.
this baby bunny was 'victim' to my father's dog a couple of weeks ago while we were visiting him for father's day.
the bunny IS alive when i took this photo. anyway, before my dad placed the bunny back with it's mother, i 'freaked' out and called the vet because it didn't feel right to me.
as i suspected, now that the baby contained a foreign smell from the dog it was surely to have it's life ended by it's mother as soon as it was returned to it's home.
needless to say the bunny and i took a 25 minute car ride to shively animal hospital were it was then rescued by an animal sanctuary. it will now live a long healthy life in an animal sanctuary instead of seeing and unfortunately ending. and no, this is not the first animal i've taken to shively .. :o)
life lesson: if a baby animal is caught by another species and you try to save it, please DON'T RETURN IT TO IT'S NEST. instead call a place like shively to see if they can get the animal to a sanctuary. as the vet reassured me, returning the animal will ends it's life only a bit later than the dog may have.
yesterday, at the flickr mixr, a dog was left outside for a seriously extended amount of time, while the owners sat inside and took their time eating.
it was VERY humid, in the 80s, and sunny the whole time. the car had to be burning up. while the restaurant claimed to have called the police, someone along the line wasn't doing there just and did not come to see the situation. VERY upsetting.
where's the sense of responsibility and why do some many people think that it stops at humans???
it's at times like that when my red hair comes alive and i have to resist speaking my mind to their abusive animal owners ...
