Worried, concerned, whatever you choose to call it [Jul. 12th, 2003|08:42 pm]

I'm worried about the fawn my mother saw crossing the road near the wildlife center. When I came to the car she said that the little spotted deer had come up the embankment, slipped on the road, got up again and ran to where a dried-up lake was. Then he/she disappeared. I'm worried that something happened to the fawn's mother and that's why he/she was wandering around, but I know that in cases like these the mother is usually somewhere close by. That doesn't keep me from worrying, though...and the shrike with the broken leg...well, I hope they're both okay.

Again I'm contemplating the horrors of Highway 25. We saw a hawk the other day in the middle of the road, obviously dead, and when we passed through again the hawk was gone. I wonder what happened, and if there's another hawk out there that will die of grief, or a nestful of much younger hawks that will die of starvation. These things that I fear sometimes...I hope none of them will come true.

On a lighter note, I've been experimenting with different LJ fonts. It's a lotof fun (yeah, I know I'm weird).

It is difficult to see an animal that's suffering or something, and not be concerned. Deer are especially beautiful. I could never, ever understand how someone
could go out and kill one of these defenseless creatures, and call it "sport". The very thought horrifies me.
Is it okay if i send the book UPS? If not, i'll send
it through the post office, but UPS is easier. I'll try and send it out this week.
peace

Re:

Yeah, deer are amazing. And although I'm sure he/she will be okay, I still worry. Fortunately the fawn was in a no-hunting zone, but there are still so many that are not. It's like people who go out to get a "trophy" want to feel powerful, like they're above the rest of the world if they murder a deer and hang the corpse on their wall. It horrifies me, too.
Yeah, UPS would be just fine. And thanks a lot--I really appreciate it.

Hopefully the little fawn will be ok.
