Yeah, I dunno that little deer was playing so much as trying to club them to death. Other animals were definitely having fun.
Speaking of which. I was in Lowes yesterday when I came across a poor little mouse in the middle of the floor. He was disoriented and needed help so I took him home. It became apparent fairly quick that he had eaten poison. I called a vet and wildlife rescue and they said the best they could do was to euthanize him. I gave him water through a eyedropper and the poor little thing was parched. He grabbed it with his little paws and drank a ton. He's sleep than stagger around a bit and sleep some more. Finally about 11pm last night he succumbed. It was pretty heartbreaking. I wonder if I just didn't prolong his suffering and should have just took him to be put down. It was well intentioned but we all know what the road to Hell is paved with. And I suppose if I was dying from poison or some other slow and painful way I'd appreciate that mercy. I really though he might pull through though. Damn.
So I'm going to take his remains to a vet now to see if they can safely dispose of him as it's dangerous to other animals if they come across his remains. They so need to get ban of animal poison and glue traps - anyone who uses the latter especially is a literal fucking monster IMO. They're just really cruel and inhumane. If you're too lazy to live trap and relocate an animal hire someone to do it. Barring they say the best lethal traps are the ones that electrocute. Better still use ultrasonics to keep them away. They work. The only reason animals come into houses is looking for food. If more people would plant fruit and nut trees and shrubs everywhere it wouldn't be an issue to begin with. I'm going to fire off an email to Lowes about this as well. Poor little fella'.
P.S. If you don't want to be absolutely infuriated never go to PETAs website and look at their action alerts about cruelty to animals. I watched a few of those and it's been a long time since I've literally wanted to kill some sick motherfuckers but some of those assholes I would gladly dispatch. You see shit like that and you realize, 'No, we can't all get along because there are some seriously sick motherfuckers in this world that desperately need to be culled from the gene pool for the good of other life, if not on general principle alone.'
