I have been watching this news story since Tues night and I can’t tell you how bad I feel. Anyone who knows me knows what a bleeding heart I am for animals.
I can’t watch any shows of any type that show any kind of cruelty to animals. I have to walk away or I think of it for days. As a child, I remember I couldn’t even watch Lassie as she always got herself into sad situations. Even snakes and mice, things I hate, I still can’t see anything hurting or dying. Things like this just keep going through my mind over and over.
There are a couple of video’s here. I never thought anything bad was going to happen to this calf though. I kept thinking someone, somewhere would be able to save this cute baby. I guess the mother abandoned it and nobody can feed it and it was in worse shape than anyone could see. What stuck in my mind this time was that it kept nudging the boats trying to suckle. How sad is that??
I guess by the time anyone reads this, it will have been euthanized. I guess in reality, it’s for the best but I was so hoping another whale mother do good-er would step up and adopt this cute thing. I’m not saying anything else should have been done or should be done. I’m not that deep off the end. I do believe some things like this happen for a reason.
Good thing it wasn’t me that lived closer huh guys?? Or we’d have a whale in the family as a pet!!!
