Cruelty in Nature

Not only are humans often cruel to one another, but even in the animal kingdom, there’s evidence of cruelty between species as well.

This morning while I was driving along the main street of Williamstown, WV, I watched a squirrel taking his safety route across the street via the power line. Midway across, two birds swooped and pecked the little critter, trying their best to knock the squirrel off the line into the traffic. His determination paid off, and he made it safely, if not frazzled, to the other side.

If I have my guess, another bird was probably nearby filming this incident so they could post it on Facebook or Youtube later. Even animals are getting anti-social. Maybe we’re rubbing off on them?
