To all the hurried and distracted drivers – please slow down and watch for wildlife crossings.
I came upon an avoidable and sad sight of a deceased cottontail [bunnies] on the new 209B Street being developed in Willoughby.
It was a dry Sunday morning at around 8 o’clock.
Just because there are no occupied houses and few cars are parked along this developing block, it is not a licence to rip through the street.
Wildlife are gradually being forced out from the remaining field lots as development progresses on this one-block street.
This unfortunate death was avoidable.
We saw these rabbits, who are the original inhabitants of this land, feeding there just a few days ago.
Remember, humans are taking away their habitat. The least we can do is afford these creatures the opportunity to survive.
