Went to the vet
to buy some cat food for my cat
and saw this woman with an opossum
that had been hit by a car and badly injured...
she wanted to have it put down
to end its suffering.
She was told that the vets there do not handle opossums
as they carry rabies...
which they did not want to risk passing on
to themselves or all their dog and cat clients.
Had I come across this little guy,
I too would have wanted to end its suffering
but I probably would have whacked it over the head
with a shovel to get the job done.
Does that make me a bad person?
