I didn't think they had people this stupid in Wyoming



http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/wyoming-man-hit-killed-moving-injured-rabbit-18914890

Of course, the comments are most likely not from people that live in Wyoming, so stupidity is expected:

That poor bunny - I feel so sick right now

and:

I'm sure the Trooper mercelessy shot the rabbit after the man died trying to save it. god bless the man who died. We obviously know who the good guy was. The kindness in this mans heart is what we need so much more of on this earth. May he rest in peace.

 Then again, I don't really know anybody from Wyoming.  Res?

I know a guy who stopped to escort turtles to the other side of the road. It wasn't on the highway, but still.

I don't know what to say. According to the bio info I could find he was a interesting guy. http://wyoming.obituaries.funeral.com/2013/04/11/william-bill-kieren-2/
My guess is he hit the rabbit and was trying to finish it off when he got hit by another car. The back highways here are deserted and from the statement of the lady he hit him it sounds like a unnecessary accident.

BTW WYHWY230 is a 2 lane narrow road, its not the interstate.

Wyomingite here, but not from the Laramie area.

Piggy backing on what Res had to say, 230 is a narrow, two lane road running south from just east Rawlins into Colorado through the mountains. It's plausible the limited sight distances involved made the bunny rescue effort a bit more risky than average.

In that case it would be a tragedy versus mere stupidity.

made the bunny rescue effort a bit more risky than average.

I'm not really commenting on the safety of rescuing the bunny, but rather how gay it was.

"made the bunny rescue effort a bit more risky than average."

I don't know that he was trying to rescue it. The guy was a frogman (what the Navy had before they called them SEALS) turned retired HWY Patrol, he probably was trying to put it down. Everyone saying he was trying to “save” the bunny wasn’t there. That talk is mostly coming from people commenting on the story.

If he hit something he might not have known what it was and stoped to check it out.

When my 4 wheel drive blew out and put me in the ditch last elk season it was just west of where this happened, so I've been on this road. An old guy standing on the road after dark woudn't have had much chance to avoid getting hit. The gal that hit him said she moved over into the other lane (not seeing him because it was dark) and hit him. She was trying to do the right thing, he was trying to do the right thing, it was dark and nobody saw what was coming. It's a stupid accident but it wasn't people being stupid.

All right. I had not considered the fact that the press always gets the story wrong. My faith in WY residents is restored.

As a surveyor, I once set up my instrument on a section corner. These usually fall right in the center of the road in these parts. I was standing in the center of the road by the instrument with my vehicle on the shoulder. Some stupid woman went through that gap without even slowing down. I'm guessing she had a foot or two on each side to spare but that is kind of hard to judge at 60 mph.

So I have learned to never set the instrument up in the road.

It's not like we're a bunch of east river commies or anything. ;-)

Eh, it's really hard to tell sometimes. Like I said, I know a guy who escorts critters across the road. Yes, he's weird. The most interesting thing about him is that he believes in the Fema camp conspiracies, but he refuses to purchase guns...

In the above link, you will find evidence of her committing the CRIME of discrimination based on a man's race.

I have included her personal email, the email of her academic advisor, link to her Facebook account, link to her two blogs, and her pictures as well.

I suggest you men write to her through her email, Facebook, and blogs, and tell her that you are reporting her for the CRIME of discrimination against men.

American women are really evil bitches.

Just a quick note to let you know that the topper for McMutant coop may not be a good idea unless you have an easy way to remove the topper. Say, you have the topper resting on concrete block walls or something. It's just too bloody hard to clean. After doing this batch, I think I'd only want 25 in there, maximum. I also don't want them going down a ramp because it makes them flap their wings, which is not so good for these birds.

We lost 3 total, out of 50. Their weight is not ideal, even though we had a light on almost all the time, which theoretically should have allowed everyone to eat. Of course, there's also the issue of actually processing them all...

Giraffe said...

Don't think I'm doing any this year. It would have to be a fall batch.

Or a really good deal at the duck store.

doomfinger said...

I would recommend Indian Runners because they are good foragers, decent egg layers, and look funny. Khakis are better layers and they also forage, but they eat more than Runners. Stay away from Pekins. I don't think they are worth it unless you can grow your own food. I'm thinking about digging an underground greenhouse this year so I can feed the critters year round.
