Rescued baby dormice eating berries, prepping for hibernation [8 pictures]

October 23, 2012 | By Abraham | 6 comments

These little dormice are being taken care of at Secret World Animal Rescue Centre after being found last month squeaking in a garden hedge without their mother. The animal shelter’s founder Pauline Kidner says,

“They are being fed on honeysuckle, blackberries and chopped nuts and if their weight reaches 40g before winter, then we will release them back into the wild, but if not then we’ll look after them for release in the spring.

    What a waste of time, resources, and energy. How about going into some cities and helping some children or homeless people that are hungry gain some weight to prepare for winter.

    These are mice. There is very little chance that they would have survived the winter. Welcome to nature. They are mice.

      First: Matt 6:1 “Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.”

      Second: Matt 15 …26And He answered and said, “It is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the dogs.” 27But she said, “Yes, Lord; but even the dogs feed on the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.” 28Then Jesus said to her, “O woman, your faith is great; it shall be done for you as you wish.” And her daughter was healed at once.

      You also realize that the world is overpopulated and that humans are killing off more and more of the endangered species?

      To be honest we should probably cull around 20% of the human population to start off with if we want to be able to actually sustain our own species on this planet.
