On my way to feed the ferals tonight, I came upon a freshly hit and killed Key deer doe on my street. I'm furious. The road is piled high with hurricane debris, has only temporary patches where the washouts were (in fact one large washout remains to this day), and visibility is compromised due to all the chaos. Despite this, all sorts of haulers, contractors, scrap people and curiosity seekers are speeding up and down the road night and day. On the video I say the Refuge states there are 12 deer deaths attributable to vehicles since the hurricane, well you can add one more to that and if you ask me I bet dollars to vegan donuts the number is MUCH higher.
Here's today's video:
I'll be very honest, I'm feeling weary lately and stupidity doesn't help the cause. Drive with care please, there are animals and people displaced all over down here. Thank you for being among those who care.
