Today, while standing by the kitchen window I noticed a mouse running across our lawn on top of the snow. I called my two daughters to come see it, but by the time they got to the window a hawk was shredding the poor thing to pieces. My kids didn't stop crying for two hours. FML

This.

Knowing that hawks eat mice is once thing. Actually seeing it happen is a lot different. I know that the hamburger I made last night was from a cow, but I sure as hell don't want to WATCH it being killed and ground up. I don't want to see the cow i'm eating. It'll make me sad. It's the same thing, in theory. Something is food for something else, but you don't want to see it. Especially when its something as cute as a mouse. :)

And to whoever mentioned cats, how often do you WATCH your cat kill a mouse? You might clean up the innards, but that's the 'hamburger' case again. It's not a mouse anymore. It's just bits. If you cat leaves whole dead mice around for you that aren't mutilated, that's a lot sadder. Or it makes me sad, anyways, when i get to see how cute it was when it was alive. I can easily see how two little kids could be upset by this.
