If anybody read my post from last night it was a rather light hearted take on the Easter Animal Ownership that has become common. This picture is the sad side of that. I understand that in a consumer economy culling a few chicks and ducks that don’t make it isn’t that big of a deal. But to me a heartbeat is a heartbeat. This duckling isn’t sleeping or at least he isn’t waking up. I counted 13 expired animals at the store I was at or possibly 13 markdowns. I felt it was important to share more than just the cute pictures.
