It's the time of year many are so charmed by the chicks and ducklings at the store, that the cuties are brought home without much thought about what happens when their care overwhelms us, we realize they aren't so cute anymore, etc., etc. It can happen to just about anybody. Most of us have made an impulse buy (that we later regretted) in our lifetimes. Rather than wait three to six months and then complain, how about some of us write our local papers a letter to the editor and warn others that if they get ducklings, chicks or bunnies and then release them to public spaces, they are causing great harm and heartache? We all have different ways of expressing ourselves. From what I've seen here we have some very effective writers! Fat Tuesday a.k.a. Mardi Gras is just a couple of days away (gasp! where does the time go?). Let's try to prevent some sadness and trouble.
