I came upon this raccoon while walking in the woods. It was dead, I could not tell what had killed it, but it made me sad. I always am hurt and saddened when something is killed for no apparent reason. I feel part of my task here on earth is the protection of the animals (No I am not a wacko animal rights person)! Part of me feels I have failed once again. By taking its picture, maybe somehow I can make up for it just a little bit.
