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

Will dogs and children be next?

 


To The Eagle:

Last Wednesday my wife and I decided to take a leisurely drive around the island after dinner. While driving back on Welcome Slough Road we came upon two Guineafowl, probably a mated pair, crossing the road so we stopped to let them pass. A white pickup coming the other way at first slowed down but then accelerated and ran over the birds right in front of us, killing one and barely missing the other.

We sat in stunned silence watching the bird die while it’s mate ran around it screeching. We both said, “What kind of person does something like that?” It occurred to me it must be an individual with no regard for the birds, the people watching or the owners of the livestock. That driver needs some serious Christian counseling or what’s next? Cats, dogs, children?
