Retired postal worker rescues deer
Cruising the Net this morning, Jo found this story about an 83 year old man, Ben Staurowsky, who went out on Mississippi River ice near Dow, IL, (Jersey County, near St. Louis) to rescue two deer.
Both Mr. Staurowsky and the deer survived.
She’s of two minds about this one. While alleviating needless cruelty to animals is admirable, as are Mr. Staurowsky’s motives, she wonders if allowing nature to take its course wouldn’t have been a wiser move. [Asst. Ed. note: my husband, commenting from the next room, says they should have killed and ate it.]
What do you think? The story is here.
Take a look and come back and tell us.
