Human impact by Cristian-M Human impact by Cristian-M
Innocent traffic victim, on the road to Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. The White-tailed Deer managed to stand up and get of the road, limping badly. :(

Almost everything we humans do, has a destructive impact on wildlife (and nature, in general)...

People always say "There are too many deer, that's why we keep hitting them!" It seems to me that there are too many people...

Very strong picture...great shot and even greater messange, thank you for it.
I will never be able to understand how people can just drive on while seeing that another being needs their help...
I found a young crow once on the side of the street-it must have layed there for hours I guess, trying to get on its feet again and struggling with its wings and nobody-really nobody gave a shit, they all just drove past it. I picked it up and tried to bring it to the vet, but it was too late for the poor thing it was already to starved and dehydrated to make it :/ still makes me sad, when I think about it...almost the same with a cat, but this one survived and is fine again.
I found several other animals on streets as well, luckily most of them could be saved. But I just don`t get how ignorant one can be. Most of them were clearly visible for everyone...and just no one stopped, no one looked or helped them. It`s really sad

Sorry fo the long blabla

I understand you perfectly, I'm like that too. I can't pass by an animal in trouble and not help it. :)
I once stopped the car and picked up a caterpillar which was crossing the road...
