Killing Don't Make Us Murders!?

Erinaceus europaeus aka European hedgehog

I apologize to all of you who find this picture not acceptable to post…
I am very touched by this scene that I’ve just seen this morning. Even now I am terrible sad each time I see this picture. I’m posting this picture to homage every dead hedgehog.

Do you Remember my sketches about a tale? If you don’t simply check it out: Sketch [photoblog.com]

Many of you said It was good! Many were shocked and sad, and many even told they would be careful! The truth is we all try to do it, and sometimes it is impossible.
Today was a normal day as everyone! Except the part of going to school and see this tragic accident.

I ask to myself, how can a person do this and don’t have at least the dignity of move it away from the road! It would simply not dirt the cars or provokes some accident (in this case it was an hedgehog, but think that if it was a deer? ) and the most important of all, move it away from the sight of the people that are not obligated to see such things.

Everyday this happens on our roads. When we kill a living being are we not being murders? I wonder who’d be happy in kill such things. Well, probably you’ll say no one, but the truth is that I know people that kill animals just for pleasure! This is not right. Animals are not like humans, that’s right, but they also have lives and they have their own ‘’feelings’’.
I’m sure Most of you know what I’m talking about. Seeing your dear pet being kill or die, you’d feel sad. You must think the same to wild animals.

To me this is the case, seeing my favorite animal dead or dying is just terrible.

Again please I beg, Drive Slow, especially at night!!

      one of my friends took the time to move a cat that had been killed on the road..just to the side...some people take the time to do these little things that mean a lot.

      Tens toda a razão, odeio ver animais mortos, principalmente nas estradas. 8/ Mas acredita que ás vezes quando eles se atravessam ou morrem eles ou nós mesmo...

      It`s horrible .. It`s a good thing you don`t live in Romania... with all those idiots driving around here you see this kind of things every single day! ... heartbreaking...and what's even worse is that nobody does anything to try to avoid things like that!

      Poor hedgehog...For him we can not do anything but, as Ricky said, we must do our best to avoid of becoming the animal killer. Ricky, you have a great heart!

      Poor hedgehog. Very interesting picture.
      Found this on the web
      "Countless hedgehogs are killed on roadways every year despite efforts to educate the public and the building of special "hedgehog tunnels" under roadways, built in an effort to give the animals a safe way to bypass busy roads."
