Figured this was better as its own thread than a shoutcast sigh. Then we can share stories of tragic animal deaths we've witnessed or executed.
Had a bad day, killed a roe deer baby while driving the tractor, harvesting some grass on a small field.
Feel shit about it, though unless you see them hiding in the grass or the mother running away, there's not much to do. At least it didn't go into the harvester and the wheels got it quickly enough. By the time I came back the second time I start seeing something brown in my grassy tracks and started to suspect what had happened. By the time you see the white spots on the fur you're just sighing in frustration.
It was dead by the time I got to it, so I lifted it up and threw it into the nearby river to wash it out to sea. Somewhat viking-like.
