While looking around on Imgur (for regular readers of my blog, you know that I love the animal pictures that can be found there!) I came across this image:
This looks like a horrible picture, and it is, but there’s more to it than just that. This is a picture of Luke Rowles when he was 15 years old. He saw a group of men in a garden, kicking and beating this fox to death. They had taped it’s mouth shut so it couldn’t even defend itself. Luke ran in and grabbed the fox and rescued it. He then took care of the fox and eventually released it back into the wild. This guy rocks, not just for this, but for the organization he started called RSDR (Rudozem Street Dog Rescue) in Bulgaria. They rescue and rehabilitate abandoned dogs and then find loving homes for them. I was in tears about three pages into their blog. I can’t handle handle animals (or people) who have been abused, neglected or abandoned. Every living thing deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. I’m glad the world has Luke Rowles around to help.
