"This poor fella is on the verge of crossing over. Perhaps rabid... I stood about 2 feet from him. He has some strange growth right by his left ear. Death is so much simpler in the animal kingdom... when it is time, they just lay down and go. No funeral, no crying, no mourning, no incinerations, or tombstones, or burials. No debts to pay or paperwork. The world keeps on turning....." - Flickr
Six years ago, Cropper was found in the street after a fight with dogs. Seriously injured and ill (toxoplasmosis), Cropper was nursed back to health by this man’s patience, love and determination. Not strong enough to return to the wild, Cropper spends very happy days with his human friend.
