“It’s very ironic;

This bird may have saved her life.”


Shannon Broderick,

British Columbia SPCA



Yet another ‘left behind’ little dog

Abandoned by us, to fend for herself

Neglected, by we callous human beings

Yet another of man’s best friends, in hell


This starving dog had been wandering the forest

She arrived at a Canadian nursing home, one day

She was literally dropped from the sky, at their door

She was deposited there, by an enormous bird of prey


Not only are far too many pets starving these horrific days

But wild predators, cannot find food, in nature’s food chain

Very luckily, for this little poodle, this hungry bird, dropped her

She now had broken ribs and deep punctures and agonizing pain


Little Miracle May, was rushed to a veterinary clinic for treatment

She also needs extensive dental surgery so she can enjoy food again

They are calling this stoic survivor: ‘The Little Dog With a Big Heart’

She will soon be up for adoption; hopefully, her ordeal now at an end


We are finding far too many throw-a-ways like her, out there, these days

I also know several people who have lost their pets, to hawks and coyotes

Please safeguard your own small dogs, cats, and kittens, from wild animals

Most of these plucked little pets, will not be nearly as lucky, as Miracle May


So many today still arrogantly maintain that we are not destroying our planet

But today, more and more predators, are being forced, to hunt ‘pet animals’

We are greedily decimating their natural habitats, and ‘killing off’ their food

They have less and less places to live and to hunt; we are rapidly, taking it all



And Please Make Adoption, Your First Option

what a story, have to wonder if the bird meant to leave it there, years ago we fed an angry tossed away tom, he was big, wanted no part of humans anymore, mated with 1 little feral lady, they raised a nice family of feral kids, and lived their year or so as feral animals because we could not persuade them that all humans are trash. on the other hand, he brought a little girl throwaway to the front porch, carried on until i came to the door and let me know in no uncertain terms that the girl needed help, and he expected me to help her, Grizzly is still here, 12 years later, until Shelby came no more he came periodically to check on her.

Animals are amazing creatures, humans are a tad more loutish

do you have more info regarding little May today

A little beauty abandoned, starving,
plucked by an eagle because the bird can't
find its usual food..i'm not sure what scenario
exactly but it doesn't matter because we're
callous bastards anyway and our destruction
has ruined it for the rest.

Once again, Ed, in admiration.

What a fortunate drop. Our neighbor's Chihuahua was snatched by a hawk in their back yard. Luckily it too was dropped and after bouncing through some tree branches it hit the ground unharmed. The neighbor kids wouldn't go outside for a week. Patrick

We all need to be reminded of precious little dogs like "Miracle May."
So many dogs are being abandoned today because there owners can't afford to keep them anymore. Another fact of our countries sad economic state. Amazing story about the large bird bringing May to safety! Thanks for sharing this Ed. I, for one, am pleased that you did. Joy L. Hale

This is so sad, Ed. I know, we as humans are so greedy and uncaring. Thank goodness for people like you and I. Just yesterday I was watching a hawk in a tree outside my building and he was so close and just sitting there waiting. I have not been this close to one of these creatures, he was magnificently beautiful. I was told that he has been coming to that tree all spring. Apparently he has lost his food resourse. I pray that we all wake up and stop this madness.

Much peace, love and light,

Poor little one...but at least she was found and made to be safe, for now, unless another callous human adopts her...e

Aw! Poor little Miracle May...she's such a cutie! I can't fathom why humans are so cruel! I'd much rather associate with animals than least most of them! Thanks for putting this out there, Ed!
