I'm so sorry you had to witness something like that, and I'm also sorry I didn't see your post before now.

As sorry as I am that you saw that, I'm heartened to know that there are folks like you that have such empathy for animals as to feel the impact of such an event. Many today, sadly, would not have reacted with such empathy, and would have probably shrugged and went on.

A couple of years ago there was a rabbit hit and killed in front of my home, and kid walking by came upon it. Instead of being revolted or saddened, he casually flipped out his cell phone and took a picture. I couldn't believe it.
