she is just interested in seeing if people would give more thought to the animals if they were somehow given human attributes.
How much 'thought' should we give exactly? What is acceptable? I hit a raccoon a while back. I felt bad for the thing, checked my car for any damage, and decided it was best to go on living my life. I suppose I could have stopped my car, stopped traffic, grabbed the little guy, and given him a proper burial. Except for the fact that he's dead and wouldn't know the difference and would actually be an easy meal for another hungry animal. But what a great honorable thing she is doing. Kudos to the crazy lady and her wacky ambitions.
