Maybe you are right about me being a little harsh. The fact of the matter is that the individual was / is unprepared for taking care of the animals in his charge. Maybe I should have sugar coated my response a little. Maybe I should have led him to believe that he is doing everything right and that everything will be ok in the end. Maybe after the animals are too weak to eat on their own someone can teach him (over this forum) how to force feed them so they will not die. Maybe while he is force feeding them, one of them will slip a fang into his finger. Maybe that will reinforce how important it might be to know how take care of the animals and to do the homework.

After thinking about this, maybe I was not too harsh. Maybe he will take my thoughts to heart and do it right. Maybe I saved him the pain of a copperhead fang in his finger. Maybe it will save the lives of some critters.
