Description

I saw this bird fluttering in the road unable to fly as I drove by. It had been hit by a car but wasn't dead. I stopped and got the bird off the road, hoping it was stunned and would revive. I was holding it in my hands shielding its eyes to calm it and carried it to a stream to give a bit of water when it shuddered a few times and died.
A beautiful bird. This was heart wrenching to record. Head trauma on one side was visible.

I called the NS DOT carcass line to pick this animal up. Hit and left at the roadside it looks like.
I tend to put flowers or vegetation on the faces of animals I record, out of decency I suppose, or to give a semblance of dignity to the creature, and perhaps to say something about respect for life to others passing by.
Sentimental, I suppose, but better than looking the other way from creatures left like garbage.

On a short stretch of less than 1/4 km at the top of a hill I collected 30 dead bees (4 diff species) when I got off my bike to walk to the top. Any ideas of where I should report, or what happened? (roadside spraying? collisions w vehicles?) I collected the dead bees and photographed at home as had no phone on me.

I was very sad to see this scene. It always makes me wonder how someone could keep driving after hitting an animal, especially such a young one. I put plants on its head as a sign of respect. I'm sorry this fawn died this way.
