Why, just the other day, I saw a few kittens strayng upon a quite busy road. I did stop, tossed them back in the bush, yet later on the same road there were several kitten pancakes upon the asphalt.
I do hope the smarter ones, figured it out, and are alive to this day.

I don’t mean to be a complete tosser here, but instead of tossing them back into the bush, couldn’t you have tossed them on/into your vehicle and tossed them at an animal shelter?
Darwinian rules actually don’t apply, Sir, in the modern word: It’s reached it’s apex, so to speak.
Survival of the richest, not fittest, you fine gentleman. [/quote]
Man, is jimipresley giving me a pass or what?
If so, he is most sorely mistaken.
Darwin rules still apply, as they have done, and as they always will do.
No, my good sir, I could have, but I would not have.
It should be mentioned that I live far from tha shitty, indeed quite in the country. And as point of fact, I see animals in distress, all the time.
Call me Callous, but since me dawg got poisoned, for no reason at all, I have hardened me heart. Sure, I feel something about those kittie pancakes, but so what?
They deserved to die if they were not smart enough to NOT go on that road.
There it is.
Flail away on me, but let’s make sure we are talking about the same element.
Life, by its very essence, entails, some shal fail, and some shall pass. Now granted, humans very much interfere with said process.
I should be honest here: I have two kids, and doing my utmost to keep them safe, takes most of my energy. I’ll be damned if I will spend it on some street animal, that unless it has the intelligence to rise above, will die soon anyway.
Last week, during a beavy rainstorm, I had to park my bike while I waited for this HUGE snake to devour several stupid frogs that were trying to cross this small rice paddy road.
Was I wrong? Should I have given the frogs a chance?
Nature, and this is something we have far digressed, has its’ own laws.
Humans, mostly ugly bags of bones and water, have not yet even begun to start.
