As a kid, I easily got emotionally attached to animals. One day, I was in the backyard when I found a baby rabbit in the window well adjacent to the patio. My family tried to save it, but it had died by the next morning. For me, it was sad, but it also served as a reminder that nature is not simply a home for cute and fluffy animals: death is quite common in nature, as brutal as it may seem. In this way, I can relate to the farmers who see dead animals frequently, especially those they may feel fondness for.
