Stray animals are the voiceless citizens of our society. Unlike humans, they can’t speak up and tell us what’s wrong. Or ask us for food and shelter. Or complain about aches and pains they are feeling.
A lot of them are ignored. Some are shooed off. And some are, unfortunately, beaten, starved, chained, caged, or run over by vehicles.
So how do cats die in the streets?
The photos below are just some of the examples of how cats can meet their demise in the concrete jungle, living alongside humans.
I’ve encountered more dead animals during the past months but didn’t have the chance to take photos. One stray tomcat (who I called Koko) disappeared and turned up a week later, emaciated and unable to walk or move properly. I took him to the vet and, sadly, had to be put to sleep due to multiple fractures and organ failures. What happened to him? I don’t know.
Suffice to say that the streets are very dangerous to animals. If you are driving and encounter animals crossing the street, please be careful and don’t run over them. Be nice to strays 🙂
