This is the time of the year when the wildlife behaves a bit recklessly, busy mating and preparing nests and such. Soon we will welcome all the new-born wildlife to our planet. These are not romantic, sentimental times: The roads are littered with dead animals.
I know that sometimes an animal will charge across the road so suddenly that an accident is unavoidable. However, watching other drivers and having been in a taxi, whose idiotic driver ran over a very frightened rabbit deliberately, I cannot help feeling that some drivers go out of their way to kill or injure wildlife. Some people enjoy cruelty and destruction.
Please, spare a thought for the wildlife, anticipate the unexpected and don’t be a killer. If you are not convinced, just look at the photograph to see what mayhem and suffering we cause by being inconsiderate, nasty or stupid.
