The Wahkiakum County Eagle - Established as The Skamokawa Eagle in 1891

Dead animals left on Birnie Slough bridge


To The Eagle:

A week ago I was driving on Puget Island. I made the stop on the bridge at Birnie Slough and saw, to my horror, a dead raccoon displayed on the top corner of the bridge, obviously placed there for all to see.

It was disturbing to think that someone would do this, and I hoped that it was a one time bad idea. Last evening we passed the same area and in the same spot was a dead nutria. Clearly placed by the same person. It made me sick to my stomach. Obviously this person has no respect for wildlife.

Yes I know raccoons and nutria are problematic, but to display these creatures in a sacrificial way is sick. Studies show that if a person is so cavalier and disrespectful about animals they are also capable of violent acts against people.

Please respect all creatures great or small. Be kind.
