Death and illness… aka My first Kill May 14, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — Canvas Summer Nige @ 8:29 pm

Wierd – got my first kill.

We had a small rabbit in the garden that I decided to see if I could approach and I could – almost too easily.  when I got near enough I could see it looked almost blind and moving quite slowly overall.  Got him and took him to show wifey at the back door and she said ahhhhhh…. oh…. mexamitocis (sp?).    So she said something needed to be done – 100% mortality rate apparently.

So told toddler I’d let it go in the back fields, but went off.  Took a deep breath.  Got a grip on it’s neck/head and held it’s back legs for a crack.  Seemed quite easy and definite.  But it did seem to still be breathing a moving slightly and not jerking around, so I gave it a smack against a fence post.  Then it did the jerky thing.

Not nice.  But I felt glad he wouldn’t suffer any more.
