I want to finish the day with something good.
Y’know; people will give up a lot of their time to help animals. I am always amazed what some will do, regardless of their own circumstances. For around 15 years I campaigned to get a voice for Serbian stray cats and dogs. Check out the site which is still going, at Serbian Animals Voice (SAV) | a voice for the voiceless
Here are a couple of videos which I want to share with you, and which I think supports this dedication.
I have always campaigned and opposed the Badger cull in England. Here the badger is a protected species, unless the government decides they are going to be killed ! Now that we have badgers come to visit every night in the garden, and being able to view them ‘in the flesh’ so very regularly, my opposition to the cull and anything associated with it has become even stronger.
The first video shows group of volunteers from the SW of England constructing an artificial badger sett in the grounds of a local school. Here are their own words:
An opportunity arose at the school to create an artificial sett for badgers currently living under an old scout hut on the site, which is going to be replaced in the near future. The school felt it was important to look after their badgers so we stepped in to help them create a new artificial sett so that the children could continue to enjoy sharing their school with the badgers and learn all about them too.
The second – It goes back to 2009 but is still a great video. Hillside is a charity located in East Anglia, England, funded entirely by public donations. It is a typical English winters day, but in the video you can see the peoples dedication that I have spoken about. Enjoy the ‘Winter Wonderland; for the animals at Hillside, free from the cages and cruelty which they may have suffered at before their deployment Hillside.
In their own words:
