I injured a gecko today really, really badly. It was so terribly injured there was no hope of saving it. So I had to kill it. The whole thing made me really sad.

I startled a mourning dove chick into flight from its nest once, when it had been left alone. I don't know if it made it on its own -- it could fly well enough to vanish among the trees across the street, so it's possible, but it was still very young. Its parents kept coming back for days looking for it. (I suspect they were young too, otherwise they would never have nested in my geranium box.) I felt awful about it.

At least you did the humane thing and didn't leave it suffering. I know how those events can haunt you for a while, though.

That's sad, but you did the right thing, in my opinion. It does make for a sad time, though.

You should have taken it to the vet you horrible person.

You did the right thing. Be glad you are a human and therefore capable of compassion and mercy. Sorry about the lizard but you are part of nature and nature is a bitch. Lucky your nice boy was there to help you recover.

Remember the lizard cpr poster you had when we were kids?
