Ed Billeaud: Cute but doomed

Summit Daily/Mark Fox

The picture of St. Patrick, the baby Highland calf, on the front page of Thursday’s SDN is one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen. As the little fellow enjoys the sunshine and a pat from the rancher, it’s so easy to see that he obviously shares the same basic emotions, feelings, as do we humans. Of course, all animals do. It is, however, jarring to read the caption of the photo, and to realize that the little guy will soon end up as nothing more than another steak dinner for someone who probably doesn’t need it.

Enjoy the sunshine while you can, little Patrick. Happy days and sweet dreams to you, innocent one.
