  1. Huh? says:

    well said, Justsayin 🙂

  2. Justsayin says:

    While animals were here first, God gave man dominion over them…having said that we have not been the best stewards of what was entrusted to us. After sin entered the world through man (with an eternal soul) animals (without an eternal soul) along with the rest of Gods creation has suffered and will until the return of Christ! Just sayin’

  3. Huh? says:

    There is also a big difference between a broken ankle and a broken hip, and a “shattered” bone is never an easy fix. And if the animal was hit by a car, there may have been internal issues. Too bad that the little thing got shot, but I’d rather have it out of pain then to put it through a round of “treatment” just to have it die anyways.

    Baby deer scream something awful though, don’t they!?!

  4. Baby deer says:

    Here is the problem with what you suggest Soaper. (And I agree with your sentiments, though). To capture the baby deer, you would have to tranqualize it, as if you tried to capture it by hand, it would destroy it’s leg to get away. It would have to be put down anyway. But, if you somehow managed to get it captured without further injury, tranqualized it and fixed it’s leg, it would still need to be cared for until the leg was healed. 6-8 weeks, of raising it in a pen, being fed by man. So, eventually you would release it, only to have trained it to look to man for care and feeding. Not a good thing for a wild animal. The best thing was to shoot it. We as a society have accepted that act by building roads and driving, knowing that a certain number of deer will be hit and killed, and more hit and injured, and need to be shot.

  5. Soaper says:

    The story about the deer is sad.

    I don’t know much about injured animals, but isn’t there something that could’ve been done besides shooting it? Isn’t there someplace in the area that could care for a wounded animal that size and then release it back into the wild when it was healed? Yes, I realize it wouldn’t be the most convenient solution, but it really makes me sad to hear of animals meeting an unfortunate fate like this.

    What the animals on this planet have had to endure because of man is really tragic. They have been around longer and it would seem they took a lot better care of the place than we have.
