In my hotel, last week, there was a hang tag with a fox on it to encourage recycling. Really?!? Using a predator to encourage recycling what was the ad company thinking when they made this?? Have we gotten so far away from nature that people do not know that a fox is not some warm fuzzy animal. I know that right now I am a little tainted in my view of foxes, but seriously I think that they could have found some cute “nice” animal like a rabbit or fawn. Some sort of “helpless” creature that needs our help. A fox for the most part is smart enough to take care of itself.
Timing is everything. This well-intended, well-placed reminder caused shake my head in wonder. Not the good kind of wonder either.
