Be kind to animals

  • Wednesday, July 10, 2013

 Dear Editor:
I live in Cross, and on the way home last week, I saw a car on Mudville Road deliberately run over a small rabbit.
I stopped and took the rabbit home with me. It was paralyzed from the waste down and the fur on its back was gone. I took care of him for two days until he died in my arms. It didn’t have a chance.
What’s wrong with these heartless people that run over the animals? I see it all the time on Hwy. 6 to Cross (turtles, rabbits, raccoons, armadillos, possums, baby deer, etc.)
I have picked up many a hurt animal to bring home and take care of, and if they are not hurt, I help them across the road to safety. It just takes a minute to help them.
These people that deliberately run over animals are nothing but cruel and heartless. Animals have feelings just like humans. We take the land from them to build these great big homes and when they look for somewhere to live, these humans kill them or make them suffer needlessly.
Please, please be kind to the animals trying to find food and shelter. They want to live, too.
Sandra L. Mahon
