Email To The Scoop: I’m so tired of seeing dead and displaced animals because of all of

this construction on Border Rd

I’m so tired of seeing dead and displaced animals because of all of this construction on Border Rd. It makes us so sad.

Dead cats, wild hogs, displaced flocks of storks, herons, etc.

I also saw a beautiful huge Pileated Woodpecker this morning in the oak trees just out front of my house. No doubt looking for a new place to inhabit, since its deciduous forest was just chopped down.

I live across the street, and every morning I wake at 6:29 to construction vehicles and digging. The constant flow of people driving 45+ mph.

 

Today’s find was the saddest to me so far… a dead baby turtle found by my dog, headed in the direction of my house from the construction site.

 

And what for? What is the point?

So, someone can put more $$$ in their pocket by building a bunch of homes that will sit vacant like the rest in this town.
