Response to That was quite a workout!
I know that youíve seen the dead opossums and raccoons lying beside the roads all over the United States. Itís a sad affair. It seems they are forever getting run over by unknowing drivers of vehicles. By the numbers one sees on the side of the road you would think they are about to become extinct. This is not too far from the truth in the opinion of many. Those of us with this concern have banded together in an effort to eliminate the untimely deaths of these mild mannered animals. We have decided it is our duty to somehow save these animals. We have begun a concerted effort to have light sensitive reflective safety collars placed on those still living. We are asking for your help in this endeavor and ask that you send ten dollars which will be used only for this effort. Your ten dollars could save the life of seven animals. Right now we are paying approximately one dollar and forty cents for these collars, but as the program develops we feel we can get a better volume price. We have thus far placed over 700 collars on Opossums and Raccoons in this country and hope to make many more. So far it appears to be working. Have you seen any opossums beside the road wearing our safety reflective collars? If so, please report it to me at the above address and I will obtain the collar for reuse. If youíve not seen any with the reflective safety collar then that in itself proves the system is working. You may want to increase your donation to maybe fifty or so dollars. It can be sent to the same above address. We have agents right now in the fields placing these collars. Itís not an easy job, but they are dedicated just as you and I are and someone has to do it. Please send your donation as soon as possible so they can continue their work.
Today the opossums and raccoons, tomorrow the Armadillo!!
