Less than 2 hours ago i rescued a huge box turtle being terrorized and kicked around in the street by 3 or 4 20something young men. I couldn't believe what i was seeing. What my 5 year old was seeing. I ran outside and told them to stop. But they didnt care. So i elbowed the guy out of the way who had his foot on the poor thing's back and picked it up, put it in the car and drove it to a nearby wood. I said a prayer over it and let it go. I am still really angry about such casually cruel mistreatment of an animal.. One guy actually seemed pissed that i was making them stop tormenting the turtle. I don't understand the mentality behind such behavior. Grrrr! Thanks for letting me vent a little. I feel better.

Oh mama! I am sorry this upset you. For what it is worth i stopped it almost as soon as it started, once i realized the one guy was not trying to shepard it out of the road to protect it but rather to 'play' with it instead. *hugs* it upset me too. I was crying when i made this post.

It wasnt bravery. Just pure mother-rage. I didnt have time to think. I just time to 'do', kwim?


Quoting jella31:

I would've called the cops. You're braver than. If those guys were doing that to an animal I think they could do it to a person.

I know, right?! That is why it took me a minute to realize wtf was going on. You just don't expect adults to be so heinous, especially so openly, so publicly.
