It saddens me someone saw her as nothing more than a trophy hunt, a beautiful creature degraded to "meat". It saddens me more that so many people drove by her while she suffered. But I'm glad it was me, I'm glad I was so close to work, and I'm glad we gave her a chance to recuperate. It just wasn't meant to be.
While being considerate of those on my flist who may feel differently, I must admit I do not comprehend the joy, thrill or excitement of hunting. Not when I have to see an animal suffer so much. She didn't deserve that.
